"...unselfish investment should: never be mindless, never be irresponsible, always calculate the cost, always consider the outcome, and always be a partnership."~ Robert Lupton, Toxic Charity
A Little History
We firmly agree with Lupton's assertion that our efforts should bring strength to our community, rather than breed dependence. As we work to deepen relationships and serve our neighbors we want to be mindful of investing well in our community. One way that we do this is to partner with our local churches to identify work-type projects that will not only help build the community, but also continue to build relationships. We desire to be a long-term blessing in our neighborhood and to be wise in this work.
How Groups Are Involved
Groups may have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of different work projects in the community, including, but not limited to: yard work, minor home repairs, and painting. While most of the work just requires participants who are willing to work, if your group has any special construction skills, please let us know in advance so we can make the most of your skills and talents.
