Students work to renovate low-income homes in Clovis
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Nearly 300 students from around the country have begun a four-day renovation project in low-income neighborhoods in Clovis. The students will paint homes, fix fences and install drip irrigation systems and greenscapes.
The teenagers and young adults are from churches around the nation and are a part of the World Changers Organization.
"It just fills me with such a joy that peole would come out here on their own time during the summer and just get up on a roof and say yeah let's work and do something," Bekah Voge said.
Clovis Community Development Agency is providing materials for the local projects. Other local businesses and schools are providing meals for the volunteers.
