      They choose a few families to help out with their home repairs. And some college students are crossing state lines to help out.

      They're actual volunteers from the University of Tennessee. More than 100 students will spend their spring break painting houses, landscaping, and repairing roofs.

      "I didn't have anything planned for spring break yet so me and three other guys we just decided to come here," said Matt Walker.

      About a dozen homes will receive repairs by the students.
