ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many South Georgians spent their Martin Luther King holiday in service to others, not just another day off.
More than a dozen people worked with the "Brush For Kindness" program with the Flint River Habitat For Humanity. They painted Latashae Jenkins' habitat home on Willow Oak. Jenkins helped build her habitat home five years ago, and has helped in the construction of several of her neighbor's homes since.
Some of the people painting Monday, the Albany State University habitat chapter, retired school teachers, and business owners, giving to others to honor Dr. King.
Health Hut owner Breckyn Guzman said "For me, Martin Luther King was an inspiration, because he wanted everyone to work together, no matter color, race, or creed."
Jenkins said "I think he would be very happy that he knows that the community comes together, to join together to do something like this."
Habitat officials said Jenkins home was selected for the Brush For Kindness program, because of her need and support to the program.
