Maryland group gives back to Allentown

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Dozens of kids are skipping the beach or the pool and instead doing some work for a good cause this summer.

A group of sixty kids traveled from Maryland to work on service projects across Allentown.

Those kids are painting, cleaning, even planting some flowers.

"We're doing work at Sacred Heart Parish, here at Central Catholic High School, at Habitat for Humanity, and also at the Former our Lady of Mount Carmel parish that we're working with Catholic charities that we're working to convert into a community outreach center," said Rev. Allen J. Hoffa, the chaplain at Allentown Central Catholic High School.

The project was a group effort organized by local Catholic officials and the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City, Maryland.
