Local church participates in the Appalachia Service Project in West Virginia

From New Jersey-

Twenty-two local teenagers and 12 adult volunteers have recently returned from a week in West Virginia where they worked to help restore homes that were in need of repair. The group, most of whom are members of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Bridgewater, joined with teens from St. Mark’s church in Basking Ridge to be part of the volunteer program, Appalachia Service Project.

The program is a Christian home repair ministry focused on helping make the homes of needy families in Appalachia warmer, safer and dryer. The group replaced walls and floors in houses that had been made uninhabitable by floods while others worked on replacing a roof, redoing siding, removing carpeting and replacing a rotting floor.
