ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany is now becoming quite the popular spring break destination.

Students from all over the country are sacrificing fun for a greater cause.

The month of March is when most colleges have their spring break week. 

Habitat for Humanity is sending some of the students who want to spend their break volunteering  to Albany to help clean up storm debris. 

Two groups, one traveling over fifteen hundred miles, spent last week here and two more from Minnesota and Nebraska are in town this week. 

"In Minnesota right now it's like negative 10 degrees and here it's like 80, and plus it's just nice to feel like you're actually helping out instead of laying on a beach doing nothing," said Kristen Grafston, student.

Habitat for Humanity is helping rebuild more than 10 homes affected by the storms.
