Love Where You Live | Saturday, September 15
Click here to sign-up via SignUpGenius to help at Love Where You Live.
LWYL’s purpose is to show God’s love by helping our neighbor. Over the last six years, Custer Road has participated in the City of Plano’s Love Where You Live (LWYL) program by helping homeowners in need with home cleanup and minor repair projects. CRUMC has sponsored 42 home improvement projects in some of the oldest neighborhoods located in Plano.
We are planning the next phase of this program in the Meadows/Ridgewood Neighborhood, located east of Jupiter Road and south of 18th Street. CRUMC, in coordination with Plano and other faith-based organizations, will be providing volunteer help to homeowners whose homes need vital improvements. Saturday, September 15, is the Service Day.
There are three areas you can get involved with this outreach to our neighbors:
- Project Manager: You will work with our LWYL coordinator, Dennis Allen to organize the work, materials, and volunteers required. You don’t have to be a home repair expert but willing to lead and manage the work. If you would like, team up with another person for this role. We will be sponsoring the homes at the end of August, so if you are interested please contact Dennis directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will determine how many homes we can sponsor. Click here to sign-up via SignUpGenius to help as a Project Manager.
- Volunteer to Work on the Homes: The second area is as a volunteer to work on the homes on September 15. Most projects involve cleaning up the yards, shrubs, trimming trees, light painting in some cases and repairing fences. On a few homes, we may have repairs to trim and/or repairs to fencing. There is work for every level of expertise. This is an opportunity for Sunday School Class and other small group members to join together for a day to volunteer on one of these projects! Contact Dennis and he will be happy to come and speak to your group. Click here to sign-up via SignUpGenius to work on the homes.
- Litter Pick-up Volunteer: The third area is as a volunteer to pick up trash in the neighborhood. This is a rewarding activity for small groups including children and youth. This is managed by the City, who will provide a brief safety training, materials, safety gear and then assign small groups to a given street area in the neighborhood. This is a Saturday morning activity only. Click here to sign-up via SignUpGenius to help pick-up litter.
