A team of twenty University of Georgia students are spending their spring break building a Habitat home for an Asheboro family in need.
Asheboro, N.C. -- Would you rather spend your spring break at the beach or at a build site? For a group of University of Georgia students the choice was easy!
Twenty Georgia Bulldogs are in Randolph County through Saturday, March 15, 2014 building a home with Habitat for Humanity of Randolph County.
The UGA group IMPACT has engaged students in affordable, substance-free service-learning projects that encourage an understanding of pressing societal issues.
"We came here because we wanted to help," said Rachel, a second year student at UGA. "It feels great to help a family in need and the Asheboro community has been so wonderful to us while we've been here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else," the accounting major said.
This is the 15th year University of Georgia students have come to Asheboro to help Habitat for Humanity. This week, they will "stand" the walls on the organization's second home on North McCrary Street.
