College students building Habitat Homes in Albany for spring break

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

65 college students from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada and the University of Maryland are spending their spring break in Albany.

The students are building two Habitat For Humanity Homes.

They arrived Sunday.

This the fourth year St. Francis students have volunteered to build for habitat during their spring break, and they say it's rewarding.

"It's really nice to be able to see the house from the foundation," said St Francis student Meaghan Carmichael.  "And see a few walls being up and now we're getting the roof on as well. It's really nice to see."

Dozens of Sherwood Elementary school students helped feed the college students at the Habitat Build.

More college students will come to Albany every week for the next month to help build the habitat homes.
