DAVISON — Teens from all over the country are participating in the weeklong Catholic HEART Workcamp in Davison from July 17-21. The teens will be housed and sleeping on the floor of St. John the Evangelist Family Center.

Their week of service reaches out to help those in need. They will work on projects such as painting, general home repairs, cleaning, landscaping, and interacting with children at local daycare centers in low-income communities. They will also be involved in food distribution, homeless shelters, and outreach centers.

The HEART Workcamp started 18 years ago in Florida with 100 campers under the direction of Steve and Lisa Walker. Since 1993, the program has grown to include more than 10,000 campers in 42 cities across the country including Jamaica and Mexico.

The goal of Heart Workcamp is two-fold. It gives teens a chance to serve and give back to the community and also an opportunity to live out their faith.

Some local social agencies in partnership with the HEART Workcamp are: Genesee County Food Ban, Habitat for Humanity, North End Soup Kitchen, St. Luke Outreach Center in Flint, Michigan Christian Youth Camp & Retreat Center, Seven Ponds Nature Center, Imlay City Summer Migrant Education Program, Toys for Tots, St. Michael in Flint, Our Lady of Guadalupe in Flint, Blessed Sacrament in Burton, St. Luke in Flint, Carriage Town Ministries, Salem Housing Project, Outreach East, St. John Christian Service, Christ the King in Flint and the Boy Scouts
