A nationwide volunteer group is sending some help to the region.
The city of Johnstown is hosting the group “World Changers” for the first time.
The Christian based group tours the country helping folks get back on their feet. The group is working on 10 different projects in the Johnstown area.
We caught up with volunteers who are replacing a roof for a woman who lives in Coopersdale.
Macy Mathews, who is a volunteer from Tennessee, has been with “World Changers” for seven different projects.
“They just say who wants to go and we pay to come here. We just go to a school and sleep on cots and air mattresses and we have a blast,” said Mathews.
There are more than 120 students from six churches across the country who are spending time in Johnstown this week.
