West: Recovery Volunteer Program Wraps Up

WEST (August 14, 2014) After nearly 10 weeks of community service, volunteers with VISTA are celebrating the steps they've taken to help in the recovery of West.

Twenty-one volunteers, most of them from West, dedicated their summer to helping the city in projects dealing with construction and revitalization.

The program is a result of a joint effort between Baylor University, the Corporation for National and Community Service as well as the City of West. Together they were able to create a summer VISTA program for young people to help out their hometown.

All volunteers will receive a $1,200 Education Reward to help them in their higher education goals.
