UVa's service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega set out to make a difference Saturday.
With the help of other members, the fraternity cleared out a huge campsite at the Holiday Trails Park in Charlottesville. Each semester, new members plan a project in order to help the community.
Fraternity members say today's project was a chance to do some good while hanging out with friends.
"It's awesome. I mean, it's essentially our family, and you know, I didn't know these people two months ago, and now they're just my best friends so I'm loving it," said member Douglas Grosvnor.
"Just being around a group of people that are so passionate has just made me realize how important this is to me," said Alpha Phi Omega member Annia Dowell-Wiltshire.
"It's awesome. We've expanded their campfire, so now all of the camp can come up here, and it'll just bring all the kids together instead of small groups," said Sara Berry of Alpha Phi Omega.
The fraternity has worked all semester and has raised thousands of dollars in order to complete the project.
