ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An organization best known for building homes for others, now has a home of its own.

The Flint River Habitat for Humanity opened its new offices on Pine Avenue on Tuesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

In addition to the extra office space, Habitat also opened what it is calling a restore, where it will sell donated items.

According to Stacy Odom Driggers of Habitat for Humanity: "it helps us provide more money for building. Everything is donated and all of the proceeds benefit building right here in our community."

The new "restore" will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays and is located at 717 Pine Avenue.
