July 14, 2008|By JENNIFER FITCH

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- About 150 teenagers, many of whom were running on fewer than six hours of sleep, left Chambersburg Area Middle School before 8 a.m. Monday for the start of Chambersburg Project. The weeklong workcamp will send teens and adult leaders to area homes, where they will perform repairs and make improvements for residents who are physically or financially unable.

"I just really like serving the people for Jesus," said Krista Wenger, 17, of Fayetteville, Pa.

Krista joined six other teenagers at the Highland Road of Michael Rollins. They tore the roof off in the morning and planned to start laying shingles under the afternoon sun.

"In this day and age, with everything going up in price, it's really something that an organization like this helps people," Rollins said.
