[LS] - This summer, some Juniata Co. homeowners will be receiving free home repair through a Christian-based volunteer program. County Commissioners heard from Brad Kerstetter, who represented the organizational committee of the Juniata County Workcamp. He said that some 450 teenagers and adults will travel from all over the country to Juniata County to help with home maintenance between June 22-28. The program is co-sponsored by Group Cares and St. Stephen's Lutheran Church in Mifflintown. Kerstetter also told the commissioners that the camp needs help from law enforcement & local residents to ensure a smooth operation. Applications for home repair can be picked up at the Juniata County Courthouse annex and St. Stephen's Lutheran Church.
