Out Of Towners Help Eastern Carolinians

Middle, High school and college students from the east coast are spending the week in Eastern Carolina, to lend a helping hand.

170 students from the non profit world changers program are working on homes around Pitt and Lenoir Counties, putting on new roofs, or just improving the homes of those who cant afford to.

Crews at a home in Kinston sweated it out in the heat Wednesday transforming this home, hoping to finish up their work on Friday. Workers say giving back to communities in need always feels good.

Grifton Mission Ministries is providing accommodations for the crews, although participants pay almost 300 bucks to sleep on the floor and work on someone else's house!!

    WITN - just so you know - the organization is World Changers and there is actually a group of 220 youth and adults that have come to Greenville to help renovate homes in our community. There are several groups working in Greenville, Farmville, Kinston, Washington, and other Pitt County locations. There are also other ministries helping to provide accomodations for the other crews. You may want to get more information about the program so that all who are helping will be recognized for their good deeds and kind hearts!

    Because the "good ol' boy" contactors around here are only intrested in making money.
