Moultrie-- Recent natural disasters have added more jobs to south Georgia.

FEMA has signed an eight million dollar contract to build mobile homes for storm victims nationwide, and Destiny Industries in Moultrie will build 300 of them.

The homes will be shipped to disaster areas nationwide. The Moultrie company hired nearly 40 workers to meet their building demands.

Freddie Davis, Junior was hired a month ago. His dad Fred Davis, Senior has been a Destiny Industries employee for a while. "I'm making good money here," said Freddie Davis, Jr. "And I hope I stay here for a long time because my dad, he's been here about 15 years, and I'm the second generation."

The company is building an average of five fully furnished mobile homes a day.

Triangle Furniture in Moultrie orders the furniture, and Bennett Transportation, which has a terminal in Moultrie, transports the homes.

FEMA signed numerous contracts for manufacturers to build five-thousand homes for their Housing Assistance Program.
