Five More UCity Homes in May. Can You Help?
Our team has been assigned 5 homes in University City for May 12, 2018. This represents an increase in our usual workload, and we need all the help we can get! The majority of this work will be to the exterior of the homes, performing a wide variety of general repair work and yard clean-up tasks. We still need three additional project managers and dozens of workers in order to get the job done. Every parishioner is encouraged to consider joining us. We will be painting, cleaning, caulking, sealing and more! Whether you're handy with a hammer, or just don't mind getting your hands dirty, there is a spot for you .... and your family .... and your friends. To learn more about this month's activities, and to volunteer, click on the link below.
Thanks for all that you do. Hope to see you on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 8:30 a.m.
