Over 100 University of Tennessee students and staff are spending their Spring Break week helping out around Moultrie.

Students are volunteering by helping with building and repair work on homes and/or non-profit facilities in Colquitt County.

Officials say that most of the UT students are associated with The Cross Ministry, which primarily reaches out to the Greek organization population on campus. Heritage Church in Moultrie hosts the group and coordinates the work projects, but many churches and organizations in the community partner together to make the week a success every year.
