LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The Flint River Habitat for Humanity teams up with Lee County officials to help repair a Lee County Vietnam Veteran's home.

Students from Lee County High School, the Lee County Chamber, City of Leesburg, Lee County Family Connection and the Lee and Albany Area YMCA repainted, cut down shrubbery and made repairs to 65-year-old James Stettnisch's home in Lee County. It's part of Habitat for Humanity's "Brush with Kindness." Stettnisch served more than seven years in the Army as a helicopter mechanic.

"Overwhelmed, very overwhelmed, amazing,” said Christy Rivers, Stettnisch's Daughter.

"Our goal is to actually build a home for a veteran in Lee County,” said Lisa Davis, Vice President of Lee County Chamber.

"The First Flint River Habitat House that Valor Built in Lee County,” said Dan Gillan, Albany Area YMCA CEO and President. “That's what this is all running up for and it's going to be for a veteran in need."

Lee County officials are hoping to raise at least $90,000 at the "9/11 Heroes Run" on February 28th to build a home for a veteran.
