Valdosta - Some South Georgia families will celebrate Christmas in a brand new home.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers are taking part in the annual Home for the Holidays build. It will take just one week to build all three houses.

New Homeowner Lynn Cobb says this is the best Christmas present she could ask for. "I think the volunteers out here are angels," said Cobb. "When I see them up on the roof working, I see them with wings, and I couldn't ask for anything more."

Hambrick's Christmas Tree farm donated Christmas trees for all of the houses. The homes will be dedicated on Saturday.
