LVMAC Tidbit: Bethany United Methodist Is Doing a Very Special Veterans Project
Bethany United Methodist Church, a member organization, after a fundraising effort, is about conduct a special, community build to improve the quality of life for “Bud” (a 101st Airborne Division, Purple Heart survivor of the Battle of Hamburger Hill) and his wife (a double amputee). This family was featured at both the Ride for Freedom and the Tribute to Our Freedom in May.
Here is their call to action for volunteers:
- Preliminary Cleaning Crews for July 17th at 10 a.m.: “Your Task Genie” is leading volunteers to go out and move household goods into a trailer to give us a nice open area to do sheet rock and flooring. Contact Scotty to volunteer and coordinate at your convenience and receive the address.
- Preliminary Renovations on July 20th at 10 a.m.: We only need two volunteers this date to work with the contractor to upgrade the bathroom to a handicap compliant bathroom. Please email Scotty to coordinate this limited need and receive the address.
- Main Build on August 3rd from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.: We will be widening doorways, hanging sheetrock, installing flooring, installing an electric chair, upgrading the outdoor ramp and some basic home maintenance. Many hands make light work. Construction experience is not required. TruBlue Construction is providing the leadership and heavy tools. This would be a wonderful day for local businesses to have a team building day and volunteer in your local community. August 17th is the rain date. Lunch will be provided for all workers. Please bring work gloves and any basic tools for construction and yard work you may have. Please contact Scotty to register and receive the address.
