Valdosta - People from all walks of life are working together for one common goal. They're providing 25 Valdosta families with new homes. "The spirit of volunteerism is everywhere," said Steve Cook, JCWP President. "We're all working together and having a great time."

Some are giving their time and energy, like Kenneth Mutegoieki, who traveled all the way from Uganda. "The USA has done so much for my country and this is a way I can repay your nation," said Mutegoieki.

Others are giving food and water to help battle the sweltering heat. "We've donated water in these recyclable cans," said Hank Amann. "All the money collected from the cans will go back to the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate."

It's only day three of the project, but all 25 houses are already 50 percent complete. "They kept trucking through the rain, and now the heat, and we're right on schedule," said Cook.

When it's all over, Teresa Enyart and 24 others will have a new home. "I would give everyone out here a hug if I could," said Enyart. "I just want them all to know how thankful I am and the difference they're making in my family's life."

Habitat officials hope to have the electricity on in all houses by Thursday. The homes will be dedicated Friday afternoon.
