Love Where You Live | Saturday, September 14

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 clean-up and minor repair projects. Custer Road has sponsored 45 home improvement projects in some of the oldest neighborhoods in Plano.

We are planning the next phase of this program in the Douglass Community, in East Plano. This is an older and historic area of our city with around 200 homes. CRUMC, in coordination with Plano and other faith-based organizations, will be providing volunteer help to homeowners whose home needs vital improvements on Saturday, September 14.

A sign-up to volunteer to help with Love Where You Live will be available soon. 

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 to work. If you would like, team up with another person for this role. We will be adopting the homes the end of August, so if you are interested, please contact Dennis directly at This will determine how many homes we can adopt.
      • Volunteer to Work on the Homes: The second area is as a volunteer to work on the homes on September 14. 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 the home structure and/or repairs to fencing. There is work for every level of expertise. Sunday School Classes and other small groups, this is an opportunity for your members to join together for a day to volunteer on one of these projects! Let Dennis know via email at and he will be happy to come and talk with your group. A volunteer sign-up will be coming soon.
      • Trash 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. Managed by Plano who will provide 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. A volunteer sign-up will be coming soon.
