MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - The Group Workcamps/Middletown Home Repair Project will bring more than 400 young people and adults from around the country to Middletown to do repairs on at least 60 homes. The Group Workcamps Foundation and Supports to Encourage Low-income Families (SELF) are co-sponsoring this weeklong event, July 11-15 to improve the living conditions for low-income elderly, disabled, and families with small children.
Sponsored by their home churches, the young adults and their adult leaders have committed to helping the Middletown residents as a demonstration of their faith. Each group will be bringing non-perishable foods which will be donated to Hope House Rescue Mission during the last evening of the camp.
The “campers” will be arriving at Stephen Vail Middle School -- where they will be based --throughout the day on Sunday, July 10 with local volunteers greeting them with welcome bags with special gifts from local businesses.
