GOOD NEWS: These Teens Are Fixing Up Homes For Families In Need

In Arlington, Virginia, over 800 teens began their summer by helping others in need. They’re part of the annual WorkCamp project sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, where the week-long project includes more than 100 home improvement projects in the community.

Organizers say the mission behind WorkCamp is to encourage young people to live outside their comfort zones. For a week, teens work to fix up area homes for those in need. Some of their projects include painting a house and weatherproofing windows. This will be the 29th year WorkCamp has been improving the community as well as improving the lives of those involved.
