Kentucky Changers

Students from across the state are spending part of their summer vacation in South Central Kentucky.

The Kentucky Changers is a group of students who volunteer their time to fix homes of those who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.

Mildred King was plagued by a leaking roof and she didn't know how she was going to fix it.

She says, "I couldn't do it myself and I just didn't know what I was going to do."

Mildred soon found out about Kentucky Changers, a group of students from across the state who volunteer part of their summer to repair homes.

Mike Duncan, the project coordinator, says, "They pay $180 to come to Kentucky Changers to sleep on a cold floor in a high school that a lot of them attend, yet they come to work."

Courtney Malone, a volunteer, says, "It's something completely out of the ordinary. How many people do you think would pay almost $200 to come and work for someone else for free?"

The volunteers say all of the hard work is worth it, once the homeowner sees the finished work.

As for Mildred, she hopes her volunteers also benefit from all of their hard work.

She says, "I just hope something good comes to their lives for doing what they're doing."
