FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 127th house in Fort Wayne Saturday.

The house was funded almost entirely by collecting aluminum cans at more than 500 locations across the city.

So just how many cans does it take to build a house?

“About five million, it takes quite a bit, but give or take five million,” said Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director Carol Keplar.

This was the third house Habitat has built in Fort Wayne through its aluminum can program.
