Over 400 workers from across the United States and Japan are in Zanesville this week to lend a helping hand. As part of a mission group, young people will be in town to help build, fix, or remodel homes for the elderly, low income, or the disabled. The project is called Zanesville Hope. Over 70 sites will be refurbished. A group of at least five children and an adult will be working on each project. Co-sponsors of the event are the city of Zanesville and the United Methodist Church.
