Teen volunteers put faith into action

Harrisburg

There’s a theme of helping others in Harrisburg this week. 

Dozens of students from multiple churches are participating in acts of kindness as part of the Faith into Action Youth Conference.

The event is an effort to better the city of Harrisburg.

Dozens of teens and adult chaperones arrived at the Harrisburg First Assembly Church of God Monday night to begin a week of service for others.

First Assembly is one of eight churches participating in an outreach program to give back to the community. 

Ninety teen volunteers and chaperones will volunteer by day and sleep in the church at night. 

The volunteers are weeding and sweeping for the Parks and Recreational Department. 

They’re also volunteering at seven other places including Love the Hill, Mission Central and Annville Gardens. 

The week of service wraps up this weekend with a free family fun day. ABC27’s James Crummel will emcee the event.

The public is invited to the free event Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at Camp Curtain Academy.

There will be live entertainment, food, games, crafts, pony rides, a reptile show, and more.
