Middle school students participate in the Summer Angels Service Camp

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Twenty-four middle school students are participating in the 8th annual Summer Angels Service Camp held by Senior Citizens Inc.

The program matches students from Savannah with activities that help seniors at various levels of need and in a variety of living situations.

The itinerary includes yard work for senior clients, home delivery of meals, craft projects and sing-a-long sessions.

"I think it really gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment for their summer," said Summer Angels Program Director Caroline Willoughby. "They're not just hanging by the pool or anything, they are actually doing some service."

Willoughby has experienced that feeling herself. She participated in the program as an eighth grader in 2006.
