ABILENE, Texas -

Teenagers with The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints took some time to give back to the community Saturday.

The teens paid a visit to the YMCA located at Redbud Park to help paint and clean up. An area leader from the event said the youth are taught to serve at a young age and, by serving others, they are also serving God.

They plan to make service projects all over the Big Country an annual event.
