WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- One Wilmington resident is getting the works. Teens from a Greensboro church youth group are in Wilmington helping make improvements to a home on Mercer Avenue. It's all a part of the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry (WARM).
Recipients are chosen based on criteria and an application. These volunteers will work for about six hours each day until Thursday on the house. They will build a back deck, stairs, repaint and replace window frames, just to name a few of the projects.
"That's a wonderful thing that they came down for a week," homeowner Debra Jonshon said. "They say they've done other projects, and they're really nice to work with. They're just so excited, and they're so cheerful. It just picks your spirits right up."
While they're here, the youth group members will also get to have some fun. Yesterday they got to visit the beach. Tonight after work, they're going kayaking.
The group has worked on more than 20 houses in the last month.
