Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, were in St. Albans on Friday, helping to refurbish a one-family house in a joint effort of the Carter Work Project and Habitat for Humanity.

The Carters, their son Chip and daughter-in-law Becky spent more than two hours building a deck on the rear of a house on 112th Road formerly belonging to he New York City Housing Authority.

Once fixed up, Habitat will transfer it to a first-time homeowner with a 30-year mortgage.

The 39th president and his family have been devoted to helping Habitat for Humanity for 30 years. Their first project was in Manhattan in 1984. 

Welcome to the discussion.

    What, none of our local black leaders are giving our white former President a hand in the mostly black community?
