Home Repair Update as of 8/26/16

County Referrals – We received 3 new referrals this week and are in the process of assessing our ability to do the requested work. Once we get these projects scheduled we will let you know the scope of each and ask for volunteers, but for right now we are mostly caught up with our Home Repair requests.

Homeless Shelter – Work has been moving very quickly and new volunteers have been extremely helpful. In spite of the heat and 42 steps to the third floor, volunteers keep showing up to pitch in on this exciting project. In fact, we have decided to give our volunteers some well-deserved time off in celebration of the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Please mark your calendars as follows:

Fri. Aug. 26 – No work scheduled
Sat. Aug. 27 – Special workday for those who cannot volunteer during the week
Mon. Aug.29 – Workday 8:00-4:00
Tue. Aug. 30 – Workday 8:00-4:00

Wed. Aug. 31 thru Mon. Sep 5 – No workdays scheduled!!

Tue. Sep. 6 – Work resumes in earnest. Watch for additional Home Repair Updates.

Note: I simply cannot believe the transformation that has occurred in just 30 days. Our volunteers are upgrading a formerly empty and neglected third floor into a clean and comfortable shelter for some of God’s children (who happen to be homeless). These volunteers truly are “the hands and feet of God”, and what a blessing it is to be part of this team.

Yours in Christ,

Paul Sallade
