As many as 75 local residents will benefit from the work of a projected 400 volunteers at the Norristown Workcamp June 2017. The Workcamp will provide free home repairs through the Group Cares (formerly Group Workcamps Foundation) program, sponsored locally by Norristown Municipality and the Norristown Area School District.

Representing about 12,000 hours of volunteer labor—with a total economic impact to the community of over $300,000.
