Albany -- 45 college students are spending their spring break week in Albany volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. The students are from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Central Florida.
They began working on four Habitat houses in the Woodland Oaks subdivision off Newton Road Monday morning doing framing and finishing work on the homes.
The students say this is more fulfilling than a week at the beach. Bucknell University Senior Jayne Kubat said " I feel like it's better to give back to the community. We still get to travel. We still get great weather. We're with friends and everything. It's almost better than the beach."
Habitat organizers say more than 225 college students will volunteer at their Albany builds this month, and they expect to complete all four houses.
Albany Elementary school students are helping host those Habitat College student volunteers. Lincoln Elementary School students prepared lunch for them Monday. The students collected pennies and dollars in school projects and raised $2000 for Habitat.
The youngsters even helped make the lunch. Lincoln Elementary Volunteer Teresa Cato said "They made the sandwiches. This is turkey and cheese, and this is peanut butter and jelly. They came down as classes and put them together."
The Lincoln student volunteers will visit the Habitat build site Wednesday.
