Last week, roughly 70 youths and approximately 46 adults volunteered their time and energy to complete almost 60 projects as part of Camp Cadiz, said organizer Carl Heckmann.

Specifically, they completed a total of 56 projects between Monday and Friday, including repairing bathroom floors, building porches and wheelchair ramps and cleaning 15 gutters and performing other landscape and repair projects, Heckmann said.

Marcus Frye, one of the project directors, said their many projects last week went well, although they had more requests for projects than they could do in a week.

Heckmann also said they washed about 150 windshields and 20 vehicles and prepared and delivered 84 hot meals to people.

He added that they also passed out more than 100 bottles of cold water to construction workers and other workers out in the heat and gave about 200 cookies to offices and places that support the public, “all done in the name of the Christ.”
