CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia Habitat for Humanity branch celebrated 23 years of service Friday.

However, instead of just having a party, Crisp-Area Habitat decided to raise money and recruit volunteers for its current project.

Crisp-Area Habitat for Humanity has helped build 24 homes for deserving families, and has had 13 "Brush with Kindness" participants.

Friday, the organization asked party attendees to donate either 23 dollars, or 23 hours of service.

It all goes to help build a home for the Grace Family, whose son Nicholas has cerebral palsy.

"We're still in the process of raising funds," said Bambie Hayes, Executive Director. "We're at about 28 percent of our goal, so our goal is $50,000, so we need your help to make that happen."

Crews broke ground on that home in Vienna back in February.

To donate, you can mail a check made out to "Crisp Area Habitat" to the below address:

Crisp Area Habitat
PO Box 1191
Cordele, GA 31010

You can also drop-off donations at 205 East 15th Avenue, Cordele, GA 31015.

Another option is to use PayPal, at: crispareahabitat@bellsouth.net.

Builds like this typically take between 90 and 120 days to complete.

The organization also needs volunteers to help build, and people to donate lunch to the volunteers. If you'd like to help, call (229) 271-8000.
