LDS Youth Help Build Home in Maryland

TANEYTOWN, MARYLAND -- A group of 200 LDS youth joined the Pyle family, with assistance from Interfaith Housing of Western Maryland to help build a home for the family last weekend. The service project helped Tracy Pyle and her two sons get started on their home, which was built under the project's home building program. The program provides financial aid to purchase construction supplies and training to help them build their home. Groups of five families work on each other's homes until all five have been built. The 200 LDS teenagers arrived at the worksite at 8 am last Thursday and were divided into groups under the supervision of adults. By the end of the day the workers had built the home from just a foundation to the front and back walls of the second story. "It's an opportunity for [us] to help someone else," said Harold Virgin, a member of the Mormon group who served as a construction supervisor. "[The teens] learn and work together, " he said. "Most of all, they spend their time doing something constructive."
