Habitat for Humanity Volunteers needed

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Construction on a new house got underway Saturday to help a family construct their new home, it's the newest project for Habitat for Humanity.

Volunteers came from North Carolina to help get it started.

Sounds of the saw, hammer and filled this Albany neighborhood. They were of joy for BJ and Bridget Harris.

"It makes me feel really good to have all these volunteer workers come out," said BJ Harris.

The couple started work on a brand new home of their own this weekend.

Bridget Harris has not done anything like this before.

"No more than hanging up pictures but it was fun, because when something goes wrong in the house I'll know how to replace it," said Bridget Harris.

But she has a lot of help.

Eddie Moran and eight others from first Baptist church in Asheville North Carolina are here to lend a hand.

"We've done trips to Detroit, mobile Alabama we've even been to places like Bolivia and Guatemala," said Morgan.

Habitat is still looking for volunteers to help on that and a few other projects, groups and individuals can click here to find out how to register.
