Students from Boston University gave up their spring break to help restore a home in Omaha. Working with Rebuilding Together Omaha, 10 Boston University Students volunteered their time to help area homeowners spruce up their properties.

Zack Innis says he doesn't do enough community service and saw a trip to Omaha as a chance to "meet a bunch of new people and go to a place where I've never been." On Thursday that place was the home of Juanita Sutton in north Omaha.

Innis along with nine other BU students worked to pull up old carpet and clean flooring.

Sutton says she suffers from emphysema and after the cleanup she no longer needs her vaporizer to sleep. The students will be in town for a week.
