By Denise Doyon for The Island Connection
The C.H.I.P. (Community Home Improvement Project) of Johns Island Presbyterian Church is sponsoring a one-day Home Repair Mission Day on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019 (Martin Luther King weekend) from 8 a.m. until the last project is finished.
Work teams will be assigned to properties on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands that are in need of small repairs and improvements in order to make these homes more safe and secure. These repairs will include: Hauling trash and materials, plumbing leaks, home damage repair, broken windows, doors that won’t shut, soft floor repair, painting, entry steps, ramps, hot water tanks, winterizing, kitchen or bathroom cabinet repair, trailer windows or door replacements, yard cleanups, pressure washing, deep cleanings, bathrooms, bathroom handrails, termite or insect treatments, smoke alarm installations, wood rot repairs, changing air filters, etc.
There is a need for volunteers of all skill levels including students age 14 and older who would like to add hours to their community service requirements. It would be wonderful to gather friends from recreational groups, church, or community groups and form a team to help with this project. Or come by yourself. There will be plenty of work to go around. In addition to your time and talent, monetary donations are needed to cover the cost of tee shirts, box lunches and first aid kits.
If you are interested in donating your time, talent and/or treasure, please contact Linda at 843.640.7817.
