Macon volunteers help give back to the community | News
Saturday is the first day of summer, and instead of relaxing by the pool, volunteers braved the heat to help out their community.
Macon Habitat for Humanity partnered with Wells Fargo's Community Service Super Saturday. The program is aimed at serving communities in 23 cities across Georgia on a single Saturday.
Hundreds of volunteers in Macon installed siding on a home in Lynmore Estates.
To celebrate the good work being done in the community, Wells Fargo presented a check for $15,000 to Macon Habitat.
To help beat the heat, guests enjoyed food, drinks and ice cream.
First time volunteer Harold Cummings says this is a great way for the community to come together.
Cummings says, "It's good to see the turn around and progression in the neighborhood. It's a great opportunity for the community to come together."
The recipient of the new home is Joni Williams.
The single mom and mother of three says she grateful for all the volunteers building her a new home.
Williams says, "In order to maintain a great community, we all must come together to clean up and make it a better place because we all have to live here."
