Campers make no-cost repairs

June 25, 2007

Valdosta --  There's a lot of hammering going on in Valdosta, as the city hosts its third Southern Hospitality Workcamp.  More than 360 people from nine states gathered in Valdosta Monday for a weeklong mission to repair 47 homes.

The campers are provided by Group Workcamps Foundation Incorporated, a faith-based organization. The campers will make basic home repairs at no cost to elderly or disabled homeowners.

"We are so blessed to have a program like this and do so much for us to help so much for the things we can't do," said Cora Mitchell, a Homeowner's Daughter.

Campers will hold a devotional every day on site for the weeklong camp.
