Geneva church prepares for Appalachian mission work
GENEVA – This summer, more than 100 teens and adults from Geneva will pile into vans for a long drive to eastern Tennessee. Once they arrive, they will build decks and porches, fix leaky roofs and damaged drywall, dig drainage ditches and build retaining walls.
For about a week, they will volunteer with the Appalachian Service Project, a Christian volunteer organization operating in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina. The organization provides home repair for low-income families, as well as some free home construction. Its primary goal is making homes “warmer, safer and drier.”
ASP was founded in summer 1969 by a minister with the United Methodist Church. Since that time, ASP has grown into an organization operating in 25 communities in five states. Each summer, about 15,000 volunteers repair about 400 homes.
