ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A day devoted to online giving in Georgia broke records and will help provide new homes in south Georgia.
Flint River Habitat for Humanity made its goal of raising $2,500 during the Georgia Gives Day, thanks to 12 donors.
The money raised will be used to rehabilitate a home on East First Avenue in Albany that was donated to the nonprofit agency.
The agency wants to transform the entire street under a new program called "Flipping the Block".
"So our goal is to obtain more property on that street and kind of revitalize that neighbor. There is a school close by and we just want to make that neighborhood come alive again," said Jennifer Hatcher, Flint River Habitat for Humanity.
