THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - For several years now, folks in Thomas County have spent their MLK Jr. Day volunteering.
On Monday, that tradition continued.
A group of volunteers from Longhorn's steakhouse came together to build a home with Habitat for Humanity.
"We just like to go out and positively contribute to our community," said Katy Garbett, Manager.
Alot of hard work that took a lot of hands.
"We've gotten more and more people that are joining in each time we do an event but its really easy to get them to go out and help us out," said Garbett.
Eventually this house will be home to a family in the Thomas County community.
"We're working on putting the shed up in the back and we're working on putting the fence up in the front of the house," said Garbett.
The group wants to make a positive difference in this community
"It makes you feel proud and it's really heartwarming to know that you're putting in the effort to help these people out," said Garbett.
From raking, to building, and helping, everyone had a job.
"The finished product, we do our progress from the before and after. Its just really amazing, its an amazing feeling," said Garbett.
All ages, from youth to adults came together as family to serve on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
