BUILD freshmen help rescue a home
Annual Georgia Southern program grows volunteer leaders
W 072715 GSU BUILD 02
Incoming Georgia Southern University freshmen Collin Edgar, 18, of Cobbtown, right, Alanna Timmins, 17, of Peachtree City, and Blaine Bishop, 18, of Adarisville, clean up a house at West Inman and South Walnut streets as part of the BUILD leadership program Monday.
Generations of household debris hit the big green bin outside an old house on West Inman Street as incoming Georgia Southern University freshmen helped the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority with its latest rehab project. This week's preliminary cleaning will prepare the house for contractors to do extensive renovations. A first-time effort by the DSDA to restore a house for sale to a public servant, it is also one of 15 examples of BUILD students pitching in last week and this with community service projects in Statesboro and Bulloch County.
