"Everyone coming together is such an awesome thing and working as a team to reroof a house that's hard work!" said World Changers Volunteer Emily Swann.
This is Swann's second year helping repair houses.
"It's awesome to be a part of," she said.
She's one of the 74-students from Texas, New Mexico and Missouri who are in the Hub City until Saturday helping people like Juanita Rodriguez give their houses a little T-L-C.
"They're real good people," Rodriguez said. "There's good people in this world. Sometimes you feel like there's nobody."
Even her pet duck, Paco, is enjoying nesting in the new house.
Ms. Rodriguez will have a new roof by the end of the week.
And so will six other houses around Lubbock thanks to the volunteers' labor and donated materials.
"It's a lot of fun not only do you get to know a lot of people but the opportunity to come and share God's love with other people it's an awesome thing."
These students are part of a larger organization known as 'world changers'.
It's a Christian-based group that does this in 85-cities across North America.
Nearly 20-thousand people have already signed up to help this summer, and each student paid $250-dollars to do so.
Swan said, however, the experience is priceless.
"It's definitely worth it you remember this for a long time and hopefully impact other people's lives in a way that they'll remember for a really long time so it's definitely 2.5 worth taking just a week of your summer to come and do this."
