One week every June, our Student Ministry, in conjunction with church and community volunteers, participates in home improvement projects for low income and elderly residents here in Marietta. Projects include: roofing, painting, carpentry, landscaping and house cleaning. We need volunteers to work on projects and also to make and deliver lunches to volunteers at each work site. For additional information please contact Joe Harwell at email@example.com.
Volunteers in the community work together to help meet basic needs of the elderly and low-income residents of Cobb County, such as home repairs, auto repairs, electrical, plumbing repairs, grass mowing, and general clean up. Men, women and youth can volunteer to help with simple or more complex projects. For more information contact Jack Godbee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
