ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Volunteers in Albany joined the rest of the country to rehabilitate the homes of deserving families. The building spree was part of the national rebuild day for the organization Rebuilding Together.

They work to handicap-proof homes for the elderly and for families in need who can't afford to make the changes themselves. And the work is all done at no cost to the homeowner. This generosity brought one of the Albany recipients to tears.

"And the Lord knows that I needed help, and I couldn't see my way out. Now I am getting it, and it's just a blessing. I just don't know how to appreciate it. If I could do a million things for them, I really would do it for them," said Gussie Bess. 

Lowes Hardware store donated a $5,000 grant to the Southwest Georgia rebuild. Rebuilding Together has rehabbed 300 homes in its 12 years of existence.
