Lets Make a Difference Day in Longview

People from all walks of life volunteered their time today in an annual event to help less fortunate homeowners in Longview.

For the past 6 years, the last week in October has brought with it "Lets Make a Difference Day" where volunteers repair and paint the homes of East Texans that need it.

The project is organized by Longview Partners in Prevention. Each year the goal is to make a difference in someone's life.

Supplies are donated from local businesses. Volunteers say the work they do on this one day, really touches those they help.

Over 150 volunteers turned out to repair and paint 5 Longview area homes.
