Youth Groups Spending Summer Fixing East Texas Homes

Church youth groups from East Texas and surrounding states are helping Longview residents with their summer home repairs.

With donated brushes and materials, the crews are hard at work to help the elderly and disabled fix up their homes.  

The annual project selects a region of the Ark-La-Tex area to work in, and shows young people nd adults, how easy it is to get involved.

"The payoff for me is to see their face whenever you're done just to see them tear up or smile, that's just the best thing in the world to me" said volunteer Josh Falling.

The group will repair and paint 6 homes in the Longview area over the week-long project.
