Mishawaka, Ind. The Downtown Mishawaka Food Pantry is getting a face lift, and what used to be an old Studebaker dealership is now getting a little taste of history.
Students from River Valley Church, participating in their Summer of Service program, are working on a two day project to improve the west side of the building.
The kids are painting a giant mural of a Studebaker car leaving the garage as a proud employee watches it take off. The team also repaired the boarded windows that were falling apart.
"I think the number one goal is to spread God's love,” says Dana Dobrodt the leader and a painter. “That's basically what we're trying to teach the kids. That they can go out in their community and help, whether it's something really simple like picking up trash or coming to a food pantry and painting a wall. But they can step out and help their community."
35 different churches have joined the Summer of Service program and are improving other areas throughout the community.
