Church group volunteers donate their time to beautify park in Harlingen
During the summer months, instead of lounging around, some teens decide to use their free time to give back to the community.
A church group with more than 100 volunteers from across Texas were in Harlingen on Wednesday morning painting benches and pavilions at Victor Park in Harlingen.
One volunteer from outside Beaumont, Texas, is on his 4th year with the ‘Fun in the Sun' volunteer program.
"Well, I came freshman year and I just fell in love with it. The people, the fellowship. Just everything that it embodies," said Jordan Alexander, a volunteer from Beaumont, Texas.
The volunteer group is attending a conference on South Padre Island and gave back to the community on its service day in Harlingen.
