Summer is heating up. And, our wonderful volunteers are hard at work, blazing new paths of progress for families!
They are cleaning apartments to prepare for families who need a place to live. They’re painting and renovating safe residents for our participating families.
We always need help in the donation center, and our volunteers are there! In summer, the grass is always growing around our 10 properties located in various sectors of Davenport. Our two full time maintenance men can’t keep up with all that mowing without volunteer assistance!
We’d never be able to serve so many families (as we do everyday) without the help of some amazing volunteers! Enjoy the photos (below) from some recent group projects. You’ll see Palmer College of Chiropractic students, YouthWorks students and chaperones, and a soldier from the Arsenal. All these groups and more have worked in June to help prepare homes for our families. In addition, individual volunteers and participants in AARP’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) as well as Goodwill SKILLS program members have steadily manned the needs of the Donation Center.
In July YouthWorks teams will continue to serve us twice a week, beginning June 21 through July 27. These teams of young Christians can come from anywhere in the US. So far, we’ve hosted teams from Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota.
