GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Dozens of missionaries from around the country have arrived in the Upstate to paint houses and fix the rooftops of those less fortunate.

The group, called the World Changers, are a bunch of teenagers who are spending the week helping others instead of heading to the beach or the pool to spend their summer days.

On The Morning News, the news team met up with part of the group as they restored a home on Merlocke Road in Greenville that was in dire need of repair.

The house was discovered by the city of Greenville, who then gave their information to the World Changers to come and work on the home and several others throughout the city.

The World Changers are a group of more than 19,000 students who made a decision to pay money out of their own pockets in order to help improve living conditions for people across the United States and Canada.

Each teenager pays $250 to take part in a week of projects, with the money going toward food, housing and supplies.
