Americus- Operation Home Delivery is expected to be Habitat for Humainty's largest project yet.

In addition to building homes in hurricane ravaged areas, for the first time ever local affiliates will construct homes, boxes them up, and ship them to the affected area. Habitat officials says donations and volunteers for the project are pouring in.

"Right now we're taking donations and we're really excited. At this point we're raised $8.2 million, so we can't wait to start putting that to work. Right now, of course, we're waiting for their immediate needs to be met, but after that we'll go in for the long term and work on the long term goals," says Molly Parrish of Habitat for Humanity International.

Habitat staff members also say New Orleans native and music artist Harry Connick, Jr. has agreed to serve as the honorary chair for Operation Home Delivery.
