| | Comments (0)

(From a press release) BLUEMONT, VA. -- Church youth groups and adult volunteers will be working on homes of low income families in Winchester and Warren, Clarke and Frederick counties July 20-25.

The 120 volunteers are members of the Impact the Valley Summer Mission project which is managed by a coalition of churches and ministries that include Marlow Heights Baptist Church and Streetwise Ministries of Front Royal. Teens Opposing Poverty of Bluemont is the umbrella organization for the project.

Work projects include painting, bathroom remodeling, improving access for wheelchair bound individuals, and other repair projects. Most of the residents being helped are elderly or disabled people living on limited incomes. Households are screened for income eligibility by Help with Housing of Berryville, a community-based organization that helps people with emergency home repairs.
