THOMASVILLE A missions project that brings children from across the country to Davidson County brought students this year from across the globe to Thomasville Middle School.
According to Toby Prince, executive director of Lexington Housing Community Development Corporation, more than 240 kids spent last week performing home repairs and sharing their faith throughout the county before retiring each night to Thomasville Middle.
Every two years, we line up children from youth groups to bring children in from all over the United States, and this year, we have kids who have come in from Tokyo, Prince said of the project known as Group Work Camp. A portion of the houses are in Lexington, and some are in Thomasville. We work hand-in-hand with the City of Lexington and the City of Thomasville.
Prince said the students spent Monday through Friday working to complete home repairs by painting and building ramps, among many other different things for local residents.
It has been amazing watching these kids, Prince said. I've been able to visit some of the job sites. All five of the kids on the job site (last Wednesday) were from different states. It's just unreal how they've built these friendships. You'd never think they all come from different states.
In years past, students have been housed at Lexington High School. This year, it was Thomasville's turn to serve as host.
According to Prince, the girls were housed in the seventh-grade hall, while the boys took the eighth-grade hall, where they spent the nights in classrooms.
Prince was effusive with his praise of TMS staff, particularly principal Kevin Leake and Lakeahia Bradby, the TMS secretary who helped organize the logistics. Prince said the setup worked out perfectly.
Prince also credited the United Way, which helps provide for CDC projects.
We get funding from the United Way, Prince said. I think a lot of times the general public doesn't see how United Way dollars are spent. The grant we get from United Way pays for materials for this program. If we didn't get United Way dollars, we wouldn't be able to do this.
Prince says planning for the next visit to Davidson County will commence shortly. In November, he said his organization will probably sign the contract for 2019. After that contract is signed, the group will secure housing for the students.
