Instead of sleeping in this morning hundreds of teens got out and about across Texoma to make a difference.

Scraping paint at Faith Mission homeless shelter was one of many projects youngsters did this Saturday for "Teens Make A Difference Day."

More than 90 teams from area schools and church groups rolled up their sleeves and took part in different projects through the community.

But it wasn't just teens who participated today.

We found some parents working alongside their kids to help make a difference.

"Out here we want to train and inspire everyone in the community to come out and volunteer, and the focus this week is on teens make a difference I think it's amazing that there are about 25 hundred teens out today on a Saturday, helping out the community," said General Mike Fantini, Commander of the 82nd training wing.

Once the hard work was over all teens who participated in projects around Wichita Falls met at the Central Boys and Girls Club for a pizza party.
