Hundreds of Teens Help Fix Homes in ElDorado

Eldorado, TX - Hundreds of young volunteers from across the state are on a mission to bring smiles to people and make their life a little easier.

Painting and cleaning lawns, those are some of the tasks that "MPACT Missions" is getting accomplished this week, in Eldorado.

"You want to be in Jesus' foot steps so that's what I'm trying to do," says Frankie Garza, a volunteer. 

Caylia Vanecek moved into her mom's home after her father passed away. She helps her mom with what she can but...

"There are just some projects that are bigger that we can't accomplish or we can't afford so something like this, it's just terrific," says Vanecek. 

So those projects were tackled today by the young volunteers.

14-year-old Frankie Garza says it's a rewarding experience.

"So it makes me feel good that we are all helping them out and making their life better," says Garza.

They cleaned the property. Then they scraped off old paint and are putting a fresh coat on the house.

This is just one group who volunteers their time, walk around town and chances are you'll find a project in the works.

More than 300 kids from churches across Texas are helping out people who can use the extra elbow grease.

"It's just a blessing to have them here," says Vanecek.  "That's the reward that we get  is helping people and seeing the smiles on their faces," says McBride. 

Pastor Mark McBride who now lives in Eldorado founded the ministry 21 years ago. Every year, "MPACT" helps a different community.

"Usually it's churches that have attended before that invite us. They say, we want this to come to our town," says McBride.
