College kids help Habitat

Albany --  College students spending their spring break in South Georgia volunteering for Habitat for Humanity didn't let some rain keep them from serving others.    

Eight students and leaders from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale and Central Michigan University helped serve lunch at a downtown Albany soup kitchen.  The students volunteered at the Shepherd's Table  at Saint Paul's Episcopal Church. 

The rain kept the students from building homes for Habitat, but could not dampen their will to help others.   "We really wanted to go out and do something, and not waste our day.  So just coming to the soup kitchen, creating the food and setting the tables, I can't wait for the people to come," said Volunteer Naika Gabriel.  

Most of these students are part of their university's leadership program. The college students arrived in Albany last night, to spend their spring break volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.
