Beginning Monday, June 18, and continuing through Friday, June 22, youth and their leaders, along with representatives from Group Workcamps, will spend their days doing home repair projects for qualified residents living in predetermined, designated areas. The teens, ages 14 to 19, are assigned specific home repair projects such as painting, fixing, caulking, and building.
Group Workcamps impacts so many lives: the residents whose homes will be repaired, the volunteers who help with the details, the businesses, individuals, family and friends who support the event financially, and the young people who travel here to work on homes in our community.
In its 20-year history and working relationship with Racine Neighborhood Watch, over 10,000 Group Workcamps participants have successfully completed home repair projects on over 1,000 Racine-area homes. Other local partners who help to make Group Workcamps possible include SC Johnson, the City of Racine, Racine Police Department, Racine Unified School District, and many others.
Partnering with Group Workcamps is just one way Racine Neighborhood Watch lives its mission to assist residents in creating safe, friendly and attractive neighborhoods throughout Racine community.
For further information, contact Charlie French, Racine Neighborhood Watch, Inc. Executive Director, 262.636.9256 or 262.939.3278 or Charlie@racinenw.com.
