Highschool Athletes Spend Spring Break Giving Back To Community

Last updated on Saturday, April 4, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS) - It’s spring break for many area school systems, and some Indianapolis football players have been spending it building a house.

Ben Davis High School football players spent a couple of days assembling panels for a Habitat for Humanity home, then turned out in 40-degree weather to put them up.

Coach Tom Meeker and two of his assistants pitched in with about 15 players.

Meeker says it's the second year the Giants have lent a hand to "Habitat" over spring break, but the first time they have worked at the build site itself.

Habitat says the home should be finished in about a month.

It's one of three habitat homes being built in the Southside Neighborhood this spring.
