Habitat needs help renovating new office

September 20, 2006

Albany -- Flint River Habitat for Humanity hopes to nail down a renovation project at its new downtown office by the end of the year.

The project has taken two years to get this far because the organization must rely on extra donations and volunteers to get the Pine Avenue office built.

Nearby businesses that donated money to the project say that when it's done it will greatly impact the city.

Habitat volunteers say it's fufilling to help the group.

"I am one of those people who are not able and proud to say it because what you go through builds who you are and it can make you or break you, and so far it's been making me," said volunteer and future homeowner Mesha Harris.

"It's very nice looking out the window and seeing this building come from where it was. It was a dilapidated old building, it was not being used. Now it has color and we're just excited about seeing it being improved," said Security Bank donor Pam Simmons.

Those who want to help rebuild the office should specify their donations toward the Pine Avenue Office. All other donations go to building homes for families in need.  Donations can be made at the Habitat Store on West Broad Avenue.
