High School Students Help Area Nonprofits

A group of East Texas high school students took the day off from school to volunteer in the community.  Today, more than 250 students from Grace Community High School are helping out local nonprofits. This group of teens, participating in Community Impact Day, are cleaning up the yard at the ARC of Tyler.

"Doing general maintenance around the house, racking leaves, washing windows, pulling weeds, doing flower beds. Its fun to watch teenage boys in action... they actually can work," says Greg Brandenburg, Teacher at Grace Community High School.

Brandenburg hopes the teens learned about the importance of community service. Today, students helped out at more than 25 local agencies.
