Daisy Ray, 16, was part of the Move Out group in Middletown this week.
“It means a lot to us and the people receiving help,” she said. “They do appreciate it a lot and we just love to help them and everybody has a great time together.”
Parker McMurry, 16, is a first-year volunteer with the program.
“It’s been a crazy experience,” he said. “It’s just been great to see a smile on the homeowner’s face as we have transformed their house.”
He said he recommends people volunteering to help with the effort.
“Even if you are not religious, just doing it is so uplifting. It helps you by helping someone else,” McMurry said.
“These children have learned a wonderful life lesson,” she said.
