North Carolina church group builds for Albany Habitat

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –16 Asheville, North Carolina church members helped Flint River Habitat for Humanity kick off their fall building blitz Friday.

This is the sixth year in a row that members of Asheville's First Baptist Church have traveled to Albany for the habitat home building program.

This year they're not building new homes but rehabbing several homes on Forsythe Street that habitat is fixing up for new occupants.

The volunteers also visited homeowners they helped out in past years. First Baptist Church of Asheville Minister to Missions Eddie Morgan said  "Often times they will come and eat with us. It's nice, good. That's why we think it's so important to come again and again. It's not about the building, it's about the relationship."

Flint River Habitat leaders say they're in dire need of volunteers for the next two weeks as they try to complete two new homes.

You can volunteer Monday through Saturday from 8 AM  to 4 PM on Forsythe Street near the airport.
