Albany -- A local church and a group of Albany State University students came together for an uplifting mission, building homes.

About 40 people from Westwood Church and ASU worked on two homes for Habitat for Humanity.

The exterior walls had already been set up by the United Way and the Marine Logistics Command during Friday's "Day of Caring."

Saturday the group focused their attention on the inside.

"I had never built on a skeleton of a house before. I mean I have hammered nails before, so I guess yes and no. But making sure that everything flushes right was interesting," said Westwood Church member, Kellie Sapp.

Anyone interested in signing a up to volunteer time to the Habitat for Humanity can call 229-446-8199 extension 14.
