Local Missions Opp: Home Works St Tammany Session starts Monday!
One of the many great partners we gained because of Hurricane Katrina is Hank Chardos and Home Works of America from Columbia, South Carolina. Homeworks is non-profit organization that empowers youth 14 and up and adults to do home repair projects in their community, specifically for those on a fixed income. I love Home Works because of the BEFORE & AFTER IMPACT. A Home Works weeklong session makes a huge impact in homes and lives. This years session starts Monday! July 10-17 and we have about 5 projects in West St. Tammany for this week, including yard clean up, roofing, light carpentry. You can volunteer for four hours, one day, or all week. You could also help provide food for volunteers during the work week or donate $$ or supplies for a project. This year, some of the regular Home Works volunteers over the past five years are working with Hank to start a permanent chapter here on the Northshore. You can get involved:
- Sign up to Volunteer or help out here.
- Show up at First Baptist Church Covington, Monday morning, July 11, before 8am. 7am if you want breakfast.
- Contact Dave Saari – firstname.lastname@example.org – about how to help start a permanent session on the Northshore.
- If you or someone you know needs Home Works to help you.
