The Wichita Eagle in Kansas reports:
Houses, bridges and overpasses in Wichita may look a bit cleaner by the end of the week.
That’s when more than 200 teenagers and adult sponsors will complete Wichita Workcamp, a summer service project hosted by Northside Church of Christ.
The middle school, high school and college students will power wash, scrape and paint 16 Wichita homes, paint over graffiti and seal and paint the floor of a local soup kitchen.
“We serve God by serving people,” said Toby Levering, a spokesman for the project, which is in its seventh year.
Other churches in Kingman; Topeka; York, Neb.; and Edmond and Shawnee, Okla., send youth groups to Wichita to volunteer in the service project, which began Tuesday and runs through Friday.
