'World Changers' coming back to Sugar Hill

SUGAR HILL -- A group of young adults will come to Sugar Hill and change the world yet again this year.

For the third year in a row, members of the World Changers youth mission will visit Sugar Hill in July to help local families and homeowners who need help maintaining their home. In coordination with the city and the Sugar Hill Housing Authority, about 200 young adults will be in town from July 25-29.

The participants pay their way to come from surrounding sites to work on homes. The labor is free and supplies are provided by the housing authority.

Last year, 36 Sugar Hill residents applied for help and World Changers completed 10 projects, ranging from house painting to replacing roofs and building handicapped ramps.

The city is asking anyone who knows a local resident who "could benefit from assistance to maintain their home" or minor repairs to contact Don Kelemen through the cityofsugarhill.com or by phone at 770-945-6716.

Applications are available online or can be picked up at City Hall.
