BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A group of North Carolina teens spent part of their summer vacation giving back to help a Berkeley County woman in need.

Every summer, the teens, who are from a church in Charlotte, make it their mission to help those who need it most.

"I love doing it it gives you a good feeling at the end of the day that you accomplished something for someone that really needed it," volunteer Elizabeth Lawson said.

During this year's five-day mission trip, they are helping two people by building a ramp. Their work will make it easier for people like disabled Berkeley County resident Diane Shuler to get in and out of her home.

"They are volunteering their services for this and it's just wonderful, it's absolutely such a blessing," Shuler said.

A group called Operation Home put her in contact with the volunteers.

The teens will be in the area for a few more days helping other residents by building other ramps.

They say it beats sitting at home during their summer vacation and they love knowing their actions are touching lives.
