University Students Volunteer In Longview

 An annual helping hand was offered today to some East Texans by Longview college students. Students from Letourneau University gave up their Saturday to participate in the Longview Blitz, or clean up effort in Longview.  More than 500 students and faculty cleaned up trash and painted and repaired buildings and homes.  One of the biggest projects was fixing the Outreach Ministry on Marshall Avenue, which is a former motel.

For those involved, it was a chance to show their commitment to the community.  Students also volunteered today at Sky Ranch in Van, WindRidge Equestrian Center and worked on several private homes in Longview.
