Florida teens lend a hand in South Georgia

July 15, 2003

Valdosta - Some Florida teens are lending a hand to local service agencies.

Fourteen teenagers from Lakeland, Florida were in Valdosta Tuesday, stocking shelves at the Second Harvest Food Bank.

They're on a week long road trip across South Georgia and North Florida, stopping each day to help at a different service organization.

"The teens don't know where they're going, and at the end of each day they get a clue to guide them to their next location," said Nicole Russell, Team Leader. "Once they find out where they're supposed to be, all we do is give them the addresses and they have to find it themselves."

Monday, the group helped at an animal shelter in Tallahassee.

The road trip is part of the Campfire U-S-A program.
