Last week, a 30-35 member platoon of volunteers clad in orange t-shirts descended on 7 homes in Beardstown intent on making a difference.
Homes in desperate need of paint soon were painted; a home in need of a new roof, received one; and one that needed paint and handrails on the steps was soon so equipped. Best of all, these needed improvements were free to the owners – no strings attached. The work was courtesy of the volunteers and staff of Workcamp NE.
Based in the North East, (hence the NE behind its name) Workcamp is a non-profit organization that serves to strengthen the faith of its student- volunteers, while serving homeowners through free home repairs. <ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
