ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police Officers give a helping hand to the Flint River Habitat for Humanity.

Several officers on APD's Special Operations Division volunteered this morning to help set up Habitat's new

store location and administrative offices on Pine Avenue. Sam's Club employees also were volunteering, and donated shelving to the store.

Habitat is moving from their Broad Avenue location into the Pine Avenue store November 1st.

The Police Officers say they enjoy volunteering.

Albany Police Lt. Greg Elder said "It's a break from the monotony of law enforcement work. Anytime we can make a connection with the community to give back and not have to arrest anyone of course, it's worth it."

Flint River Habitat Executive Director Stacey Odom Driggers said "I think it's incredible they see the value in what we're doing and want to help."

More than 40 members of the Albany Police Department have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in the last couple of weeks.
