Habitat for Humanity has a lot going on the next few weeks.
One project involves college students who are spending their spring break doing painting, building and other improvements.
This week and next, students from two different universities in Pennsylvania are in town to do that work.
Thursday, one group of students helped paint several rooms at the Maverick Club.
It's all part of the Collegiate Challenge, where students choose which city they'd like to visit to help the habitat organization.
"It's just amazing that people would, especially college students to me, that they would choose to spend their spring break to come to the Panhandle of Texas, to just come and spend their whole week with us and they work hard, they will do anything that we ask them to do
said Becky Davis, Habitat for Humanity.
Amarilloâ??s Habitat for Humanity will also have their womenâ??s build this Saturday.
During that project, they will raise the first wall on a home for a family from Rwanda.
