A house at 1612 Jefferson Court in Lowndes County is getting an upgrade after the family who lived there moved out.
More than 20 Valdosta State students spent the day fixing and painting the home.
They say giving back to the community is essential. "Our community is where we start from," said Maurissa Francis, one of the VSU students painting the house. "It's our foundation place. And if we don't give back, then no one will. So, it has to start with us. We may be young, but it has to start somewhere."
This Habitat House is expected to be completed in about two weeks.
Managers will then choose the homeowner from among six families.
