(07/01/16) - Renovations are underway at Baker College in Flint, but it's a construction project unlike others on campus.

Construction crews are clearing out what's left inside a dorm building on the Baker College campus.

Baker East is undergoing extensive renovations. Thirty-six suites are being gutted, but furniture and appliances that could have gone in the dump won't this time.

Crossover Downtown Outreach Ministry and Genesee County Habitat for Humanity will be taking all of the items to give the families they serve. There are 36 sets of bunk beds, desks, dressers, stoves and refrigerators.

Truckload by truckload, the items have been disappearing from the lot. The last of it should be gone in the next few days.

The college plans to do the same thing for any future projects on campus.
