MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – Imagine exchanging volunteer time for rent. That’s what a couple Dauphin County college students are doing at The Middletown Home.
College students pay a reduced rent and complete 20 hours of community service a month to live at The Middletown Home. But residents say the energy and friendship the students provide is priceless.
“They’re very happy,” said Richard Huber, a resident in the community. “It makes me very happy that young people actually fit in with the older group, and we do have older people…my golly, one is 101.”
