Rockdale Career Academy (RCA) students in the Construction Career Pathway recently helped a Conyers family in need by building a shed to accompany the family’s new home by Habitat for Humanity Conyers/Rockdale.

The shed will provide storage space for the Habitat home, which is the sixth home constructed in Habitat’s Olde Town Village community.

About 30 students in RCA Construction Instructor Brett Creel’s Carpentry class designed and built the 8-foot-by-8-foot shed as part of their continuing focus on service and project-based learning.

Habitat for Humanity Conyers/Rockdale was founded in 1990 and is supported by volunteers and donations. Habitat will ultimately provide housing for 25 families in the Olde Town Village community, along with homes already finished in eight other Conyers locations.  For more information on volunteering, donating, or helping with Habitat for Humanity Conyers/Rockdale’s projects or Restore store, contact Jack Arvin at jcarvin@comcast.net or visit habitatrockdale.org.
