APD Teen Academy volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some Dougherty County students spend their day volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.

Middle and High School students with the Albany Police Department's Teen Academy volunteered at the Flint River Habitat for Humanity ReStore location on Pine Avenue. Students organized book shelves, put new products into the store and bundled wood. This is the first time the APD Teen Academy has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity.

"It makes me feel good, knowing that I can help out in anyway that I can,” said Chequoria Taylor, Volunteer.

"Why not bring them out here and help give back to the community,” said Corporal Phyllis Walters, APD Crime Prevention Unit. “It's a community that they live in, so they are enjoying it."

"Revenue from the ReStore is used to help build houses and to help provide safe and affordable housing here in the community, so it's wonderful the youth here are being apart of that,” said Jennifer Vanston, Flint River Habitat for Humanity Executive Director.

The APD Teen Academy also volunteered at Morningside Assisted Living for their "Day of Caring."
