Habitat starts building on two homes

October 28, 2006

Albany -- Flint River Habitat for Humanity celebrates National Make A Difference Day by starting new homes for two Albany families.

Volunteers started bright and early this morning on the new homes for the Hayes and Lubrin families. Up to 50 people pulled out hammers and chipped in to help out on the new homes.

The families say their new homes will really make a difference.

"When I get old it will be really great to look back on those years when I started building the house myself," said Dorthea Lubrin.

"It's a blessing to have, and we're greatful to all the people at Habitat and all our friends and family that come help us out," said Ricardo Hayes.

Habitat volunteers build homes from the ground up for families and gives them an interest free mortgage.

The group welcomes volunteers at the current building site, visit www.flintriverhabitat.org.
