Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Volunteers and young people at the Department of Juvenile Justice are working to give to the community.

The "Chairs4Charity" building blitz wrapped up Friday.

Teens at DJJ learned carpentry skills and built chairs, footstools and tea tables. Those that built the chairs picked three non-profits that DJJ then donated chairs to.

They say it helps the teens learn important job skills and teaches them to give back to the community.

College students and faith-based volunteers worked with the DJJ students on the project. They said that all generations helped with the building.
