TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A group of seniors from Tupelo High School gave back to the Boys and Girls Club on Saturday.

For their senior class project, they chose to repaint the club's gymnasium, which they said hasn't been painted in nearly four decades.

It was part of Tupelo High School's community project that seniors must complete before graduation.

According to members, nearly 40 students got out of their beds on a Saturday morning to help the project.

They said Sherwin Williams donated 25 gallons of paint and Weezie's Deli provided lunch.

"We chose the Boys and Girls Club because it's one of the best non-profit organizations in the country," said senior Mathilda Lail. They just reach out to kids that really need their help and need a place to go after schools."

The group said they plan to hold an arts and crafts project with the Boys and Girls Club in the coming weeks.
