Habitat starts 20th anniversary home

September 9, 2006

Albany -- Flint River Habitat for Humanity volunteers set the groundwork today on the 20th anniversary build.

More than 100 volunteers got to work with hammers and nails in hand around eight this morning.

They're building a new home located in the Woodland Oaks subdivision.

Some workers came from seven hours away in Asheville, North Carolina to help out with the project.

"Because body, mind and spirit are so connected, we at First Baptist Church think it's so important to help people have good, solid, good affordable housing," said Eddie Morgan of First Baptist Church in Asheville, NC.

"They began to build my home in 2001, and I moved in April of 2002, so I thank God for that," said volunteer Gracie Cheatman.

Other homeowners came out to help, along with the the Albany State Habitat chapter.

Anyone in the community can come help. All you have to do is sign up on-site at Forsythe Street and Willow Oak Court.
