Stephen Baldwin helps family realize dream

By Eric Sollman - bio | email

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - Friday a special guest made his way to Morgan County.

Actor Stephen Baldwin was on hand to help build the 50th home for Habitat for Humanity in Decatur.

Baldwin greeted fans and signed autographs, he even helped out around the house.

The home will belong to Renee Baker and her family who have been waiting for more than a year to see their dream come true.

The house also holds special meaning to the Habitat for Humanity family.

It will be built in honor of Cindy Szinegh. Szinegh is the former Vice President of Corporate Services for Exit Realty.

This build will be a tribute to the passion and enthusiasm that Cindy put into her work for Habitat for Humanity.

Baldwin was at Szinegh's husband Alex's side Friday to talk about the charity.

"For Alex to call me and let me know there's an extra special meaning to this particular house it was a no-brainer to just come on out and be a part of what the community is doing."

Alex's wife, Cindy, passed away from breast cancer in September of 2008.

The home built in her honor will be named for her daughter Chantel, and is expected to be finished by Christmas.
