Resurrection brought out a total of 338 volunteers, including 34 house captains to serve on a beautiful October 12th making a difference to assist the elderly, disabled, and veteran homeowners for 17 owner-occupied homes! This year’s strategy was to focus on our footprint, 18th-29th, Troost-Prospect, transforming a concentrated area.
This year, homes received new windows, new roofs, electrical work, plumbing work, ramps, decks, porches, and one home, received a new bathroom & kitchen! A team of 40 servants covered a ten block area picking up trash in the Wendell Phillips neighborhood. A long-time business across the street from Wendell Phillips Elementary, H&S Deli, was given a fresh coat of red paint by 40 servants.
As a special touch this year, the Resurrection Painter Art Guild donated paintings with a prayer on the back to each of the 17 homeowners for their homes.
This effort has been months in the planning. Resurrection's project was lead by Larry Hedenkamp. The end result certainly included improved homes, but also some great fellowship.
