World Changers coming to our area

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - One local church is working hard to get volunteers to help beautify our area, especially after Hurricane Michael.

For the third year in a row, The First Baptist Church of Panama City is partnering with World Changers to bring kids from all over the nation to help the Community Redevelopment Agencies of Millville and Downtown North.

From June 24-29 around 270 high school students will be here to work with the CRA and make improvements to the area.

Church leaders say this is more than just helping someone repair their home.

"It also helps young people realize the value of work and that with just a few days, and a lot of hard work, they can really make a difference in somebody's home," said David Flatt, the Minister of Education for the First Baptist Church of Panama City.

If you would like for your house the be worked on, you can grab an application at Panama City's City Hall or check its website.

The application must be turned in to the city by June 7th.
