The first Honey Do Crew project of the season took place yesterday as one of our collaborative partners proved up to the task of giving Ms. Gynith's front porch a facelift.
C.R.O.S.S. Ministry at Christ Church United Methodist is bringing in groups of volunteers who will be working in the Valley for a week at a time from June through August. They partnered with FIAGKV to identify projects for seniors striving to age in place, but who face obstacles when it comes to taking care of their home's maintenance. Our care receivers responded with a variety of requests to help keep the C.R.O.S.S. teams busy, and we're all excited that work is now underway on the initial projects selected.
On Monday, Gynith's front porch got a little TLC courtesy of a wonderful group of volunteers visiting form Grace United Methodist Church in Naperville, Illinois. These hardworking ladies are from the church's Side by Side Youth Summer Missions program. They worked all day prepping, scraping, scrubbing, painting, and finishing before presenting Gynith with a spiffy "new" front porch and bouquet of hydrangeas.
By the smile on her face, it seems safe to say Gynith is happy with the result!
