OH, MA, ME Volunteers Help Maine Homes Be Safe, Warm
CHERRYFIELD, Me — Housing Rehabilitation Program Coordinator Scott Shaw sends these field photos of three different Housing Rehabilitation Program Volunteer Groups from Ohio, Massachusetts, and Maine.
The individual volunteers arrive at the Mission’s Cherryfield Campus for two week periods, dedicating their expertise and elbow grease to help Down East Maine families live in safe, warm housing.
The First Congregational Church of South Portland group repaired a home access ramp and painted the trailer of an octogenarian homeowner who remembers at age 8 or 9 years old, around the Japanese attack on Pear Harbor, when the Sunbeam delivered Christmas presents to her Maine island home.
Every year we completely rebuild two mobile homes or houses for local families. The families contribute sweat equity to the rebuilding projects and often have one or more children active in the Mission’s EdGE program. Learn more.
Thank you to the volunteers from First Congregational Church UCC, South Portland, ME; The Federated Church UCC, Chagin Falls, OH, and Second Congregational Church of Boxford, MA.
