Valdosta - The Southern Hospitality Work Camp wrapped up today in Valdosta. 

The 360 teens from around the country worked all week repairing houses for the elderly, disabled, and low income families.  A group of these teens spent the week at Cleo Manning's house on Savannah Avenue.

They scraped and repainted her house, build railings on her patio, and did other minor repairs in the house and yard.
"I'm so proud of my house," Ms. Manning exclaimed!  "It's so different and new. So beautiful! I couldn't have fixed it in a lifetime like it is now. It's so beautiful and I'm so thankful for the help to fix it like it is."

It had been 18 years since Manning was last able to repair her house.  The groups of teens will return next summer to work on another group of homes throughout the city.
