About a dozen young people joined forces at a Chattanooga home to give it a brand new look.
Resident Betty Hampton can't believe these kids gave up their summer vacation to help her.
"That's what I was trying to figure out. Hah, hah, hah. I was just thanking me some wonderful children, cause most of them won't do it."
This annual work camp brings together kids from area Churches of Christ.
They range in age from about 12 to 18.
Maddie Van Eaton wanted to be involved.
"I love when we help, and we help these people, when the end result and they see the house, to see the joy on their faces, it's really quite rewarding, so."
Joshua Bontrager is the Youth Minister at East Brainerd Church of Christ:
"Our kids pay to do this. And they pay about 35 dollars to do this, which covers some of our supplies and stuff like that. And we've got people who plan around the calendar for this event."
This team is just one of 16 crews working on 30 different sites throughout the area.
In all, 2-hundred 35 young people came out for some hard work.
Resident Betty Hampton thinks this annual event does make a difference.
"Wonderful. I've been wanting the house painted. I just wasn't able to do it. The Lord just sent them by here, thank you all very much."
