Housing Task Force - Neighbors Helping Neighbors 
There will be a work party on Saturday April 26th to help a neighbor paint their trim and soffit, and clear debris from the yard. The recipient of the work party is unable to care for her home and has asked her neighbors for help. The Housing Task Force is raising funds to cover the cost of the paint and supplies required and organizing the event. With many people providing small financial contributions we can make a big difference. If you can assist physically at the work party painting and cleaning  or monetarily to cover cost, email to let us know so we can better plan. 
When we all join together to assist our low income neighbors beautify their homes we all benefit!
