It's not every day you find a large group of teenagers willing to wake up early on a Saturday morning knowing they'll be doing manual labor.
"Just that fact that I get the opportunity to help out it feels really good to me," said Midland HS Student in Philanthropy Jodi Wright.
Michael--"We warmed up and it's all worth it in the end," said Midland HS Student In Philanthropy Michaela Salas.
Nearly 10 students worked on one specific Habitat for Humanity. The organization plans to build dozens on the city donated land on Hamby Drive.
It's really an amazing blessing to be able to work with students like this. You don't see that everywhere but midland has got some good kids," said Midland Habitat Volunteer Organizer Moly Daniels.
The major work of hammering nails into the roof and cutting wood down to size was left to the three man profession crew that work for Habitat, however the students nailed in siding and learned how to put together windows.
"First when they were teaching us how to do certain things, I was like okay this is a lot more than hammering it's, you have to have the aim and everything," said Salas
Wright said, "I do not build things so it was a little scary but they've helped us out a lot."
Thanks to the students desire to help out, the students picked up some more skills.
"But they walk away with knowing how to use a miter saw put up siding or how to put in insulation," said Daniels.
The high school volunteers said, this experience was excited and at least one of them plans to help build again.
"People just get caught up in doing the cool thing you know hanging out with your friends going to the mall and shop and stuff, but we would rather take part in helping out in the community and doing stuff that's right for other people," said Wright.
