More than 300 youth left their mark on the City of Blanding and central San Juan County in the past week after a massive volunteer effort which helped repair 46 homes.

At the invitation of Blanding Mayor Toni Turk, the national Group Workcamps Foundation teamed with the state of Utah to coordinate the effort.

With a base camp at San Juan High School, they logged more than 12,000 hours on 46 home improvement projects, including building wheelchair ramps, replacing roofs, painting, repairing walls and siding and constructing decks, porches and steps.
