CATOOSA, Oklahoma -- Thousands of students are changing the world one city at a time. This week, about 300 volunteers are in the Tulsa area to help out.

They came from seven different states to lend a hand. From painting to putting on new roofs for folks, they say the little things can make a big difference in people's lives.

"Their main goal is just to share the love of Christ through the work that they're doing," said Devan Malone of World Changers.

"They get to go out in the neighborhoods and kinda tell what they're doing and then get the experience as well working with missions."

Peyton Price is a World Changer volunteer from Georgia.

"Even though it costs money to come, it's just something just to feel when you lay your head at night just be like, ‘I did something for someone that's amazing, and they're gonna appreciate it for the rest of their lives,'" Price said.

The volunteers each pay $250 to spend four days in town, working at about two dozen different sites.
