Group Workcamp Lexington, North Carolina
Community pride runs deep in Lexington. Here, people take time to appreciate each other and to make visitors feel welcome. Priding themselves in more than their hospitable community, Lexington is also known as the “Barbeque Capital of North Carolina.”
Lexington is a place some families have proudly called home for generations. Yet, over the past twenty years, some alarming changes have come to the area. Once a thriving furniture and textile industry, the people of Davidson County have seen employers move away and factories close.
Many hard-working citizens have suddenly found themselves without jobs. Younger people have left in search of work—leaving a growing elderly population who often find it difficult to take care of themselves and maintain home repairs. You can make a real difference in this community. Bring new hope to an elderly woman whose husband has passed away. Break through the despair of a single mother with five children. Bring a smile to a child whose father has been without work for months.
