Albany - You can help build on the dream of Martin Luther King Junior, literally. Albany's Habitat for Humanity is holding its 3rd annual "Building on the Dream" blitz.

Starting Monday, Habitat need volunteers to complete three houses in the Woodland Oaks subdivision. "Dr. King's vision was for people to live and work together without the racism," said Stacey Odom-Driggers. "This build is a way to bring lots of different people together in honor of Dr. King."

Registration begins at 7:30AM each day next week, with construction starting around 8:00AM.

You don't need any experience, and lunch and snacks will be provided. The new homes will be dedicated Saturday January 22, 2005.
