One of the more famous natives of St. Thomas returned home to help build a house for a family in need.
Actress Rachel McAdams was in St. Thomas on Thursday, helping Habitat For Humanity crews build a house at 8 Westlake Drive.
McAdams and her family were on the build site Thursday afternoon, and met with the recipients of the house, the Doucet family.
“Habitat for Humanity is a tremendous organization and I’m honored to support their efforts in my community,” said McAdams. “There’s something so profoundly beautiful about building a home from the ground up. It’s about more than doors and windows and paint. It’s about family, future, and building the foundation for lasting memories.”
