More than 1,000 volunteers from area churches continue to take part in the week-long Flower City Work Camp.
Organizers say one home was on the verge of being condemned until camp volunteers stepped in and helped to repair the home. Now, thanks to donations, the home will have a new kitchen ceiling, cabinets, windows, and freshly painted walls.
Volunteers say the program is a great way for kids to use faith as a way to give back.
"They'll all come to one home, and they'll work at one home for three days," said Gary Smith, Flower City Work Camp. "We get as much work done as we can for the homeowner. We show her Jesus through the work that we do. The kids build a relationship through the homeowner and it is just a great feeling knowing what they can do for a homeowner like that."
Flower City Work Camp worked in 60 homes in the City of Rochester. Everything that went into the homes was either donated or paid for by the cost to attend the camp.
