BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Over 30 high school students spent the past few days in Brunswick County putting nails and hammers to use.
The students are from two high schools in Burke County and were brought to the coast through Foot Hills Service Projects and Faith Building Missions.
While in the area, they stayed at Ocean View Baptist Church and completed five projects, which included building wheelchair ramps and houses.
“You can’t even begin to understand what it means to me and what they mean to me,” said homeowner Irene Caudle. “They are taking time out of their class, I know they’re getting graded for it, but it’s just wonderful to see how young people do.”
