NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Habitat for Humanity partnered with the Nashville Office of the Wounded Warrior Project in an effort to serve the community.

On Sunday, a group of veterans, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, joined in to help build three new Habitat for Humanity homes for families living in North Nashville's Park Preserve neighborhood.

The effort marked the first time the Nashville Wounded Warrior Project had partnered with Habitat for Humanity.

Officials with the Wounded Warrior Project said that serving others is a great way for veterans to heal and grow.

"The logo isn't just a wounded warrior, it's one warrior carrying another," said Tiffany Daugherty with the Wounded Warrior Project. "That's something we try and live throughout our organization is the idea that we're not only being served… but also giving back and serving others."

Daugherty said she hopes the partnership will continue in the future.
