If you have reached this page from the link in the AJC’s Faith Calendar, and you do not wish to join Holy Trinity Parish’s group of volunteers, go to the signup page on the MLK Service Project Web site here. The calendar entry incorrectly states that Holy Trinity Parish is the event organizer. The Decatur Preservation Alliance is the event organizer; information on the organization is available here.
The Decatur MLK Service Project, a large-scale volunteer initiative organized by the Decatur Preservation Alliance, provides free house maintenance and repair for Decatur’s needy senior homeowners each January. By completing needed repairs, painting, weatherization, adding handicap accessible features, and yard work, the project helps seniors live safely, comfortably, and affordably in their own homes. Go to the signup form.
“As a volunteer for the past five years, I can’t imagine missing a year. Aside from getting to know my fellow church members better, working with the homeowner and seeing the direct impact we can have in our local community is rewarding–not just physically, but spiritually. There is always a job for everyone, no matter your skill level.”
2016 will be Holy Trinity’s seventh year sponsoring a home during Decatur’s Martin Luther King Weekend Service Project! Since 2010, HTP has provided volunteers for more than 300 volunteer shifts and countless bag lunches from the Daughters of the King, and has successfully completed projects contributing to the safety and sustainability of neighbors’ homes. Please join the core of committed volunteers for the 2016 project on January 16-18.
