About 300 junior high, high school, and college students from around the country — including 25 from the Clovis/Fresno area — arrived Monday evening in Clovis to begin a four-day project on Tuesday of renovating 23 homes and yards in lower-income neighborhoods.
Clovis received a record 78 applications for help this year.
The students are painting homes, fixing fences and installing drip irrigation systems, solar lighting, xeriscapes and greenscapes.
This is the seventh year in a row the World Changers organization has come to Clovis, and is the only city in California the teenagers and young adults will be assisting this year.
