Rebuilding Together With Community Outreach

On April 9, 2012, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

Please join Rebuilding Together and Community Outreach on Saturday May 5th from 9-2 p.m. to help bless an 83 year old veteran and his 79 year old wife with dementia. Their home is on Main Street in Castroville and needs a number of things to help make it safe for them to live in. A few of the things it needs are painting, work on the front door that has a one inch gap at the bottom, the floor under the toilet is sinking and a handicap-accessible toilet. There will also be some cleaning and yard work needed.

We will start the day with bagels and donuts, and then on to work with a break for lunch, which will be provided.

So, if you can swing a hammer, paint or just clean, please consider helping and sign up at the Connection Center or at the Community Outreach Booth. Questions? Contact Chris Larson.

Thank you for having a heart like Jesus!

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of  you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
James 2:15-17 (NIV)
