ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Habitat for Humanity is repurposing tiles to raise money for their Albany Restore.
Tuesday night they held "Do It Yourself" classes.
For $20 people got help turning tiles into coasters, hot plates or pictures.
Organizers said the night of fun encouraged people to reuse items they already have.
"The purpose is to basically show people that you can use stuff that you have laying around. We use stuff that we have in excess, like we've used windows before as tile. So you can kind of use stuff that's laying around and stuff you have in excess and turn it into something different," explained Programs and Marketing Director Jennifer Hatcher.
All proceeds will help Habitat build more houses for families in Lee and Dougherty Counties.
