ORLANDO, Fla. —

An Orlando mother received the Mother’s Day gift of a lifetime when she got the keys to her new Habitat for Humanity home.

Nearly 300 central Florida women gathered to build the three-bedroom, 1,150-square-foot home for Sherall Leo, a single mother of two.

The volunteers also raised $160,000.

Channel 9’s Vanessa Echols was the emcee for the special event where Leo was awarded with the home on Daley Street.
