Martin Luther King Weekend Service Project
January 19-21, 2019 will be Holy Trinity’s ninth year to sponsor a home during Decatur’s MLK Weekend Service Project! Since 2010, our parish has provided volunteers for more than 400 volunteer shifts, countless bag lunches from the Daughters of the King, and successfully completed projects contributing to the safety and sustainability of homes of our neighbors. Please join our core of committed volunteers.
Shifts will be Saturday January 19, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., and 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, January 20 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.; and Monday, January 21 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., and 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. We will be in need of skills in carpentry, painting, organizing, and general following directions.

The Decatur MLK Service Project, a large-scale volunteer initiative, 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.
“As a volunteer for the past six 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.” —Nancy Qarmout
