The first-ever Pensacola Work Camp is winding down. Coordinated nationally by the Colorado-based Group Cares program, the outreach ministry Grace of Pensacola has hosted over 200 young people from churches in nine states. They've spent the week in Pensacola providing repairs and improvements to the homes of eligible residents.
Across the city, there a few worksites, where homes are getting a facelift.
On Marcus Drive, which is tucked between the four-lane roadways of Fairfield Drive and Texar Drive, there are several houses that are getting some attention.
More than 200 youth volunteers from churches in nine states around the country are in the local community this week, participating in the inaugural Pensacola Workcamp. The project is providing free critical home upgrades for over 30 local elderly, handicapped, and lower-income residents.
