Albany-- South Georgians have answered the call to replace many of the power tools and ladders stolen from the Flint River Habitat for Humanity building site in the Woodland Oaks subdivision last month.

"People have been so generous, we have had donations just dropped off at the office," says Executive Director, Stacey Odom-Driggers.

It's been amazing the outpouring, and we are very pleased," said Odom-Driggers. Now habitat leaders say they have a new problem, not enough workers to use the tools that have been donated.

"I know everybody is busy because of the holidays, but they won't be moving in until the new year, we need volunteers to come out and work with us," Odom-Driggers says.

Flint River Habitat continues to put the finishing touches on several homes in the Woodland oaks subdivision, and will be needing more of your help to build toward a bright future.
