Youths from six Fayette churches will come together again this summer to help out in a variety of projects for those in need of a helping hand.
The Fayette Youth Invasion 2013—a mission trip at home—is scheduled Aug. 4-6 to help make the community a better place to live.
Youths and chaperones will live at the high school for three days, going out into the community each day to take part in service projects.
Representatives from area churches have met to organize activities and discuss work sites, but they’re hoping to hear from area citizens about project ideas and assistance.
The group is looking for commitments of assistance in the form of time donated, work supplies, equipment or money. The level of involvement would be up to each volunteer. Donations are tax deductible and should be made through one the six area Fayette churches.
Each project suggestion will be evaluated following a brief site inspection to satisfy safety concerns. Students will not participate in any roof work.
Work projects could involve landscaping, yard work, interior and exterior house painting, house cleaning, light construction projects and other chores.
To assist with the Youth Invasion or to request an on-site evaluation, contact your local church or Robyn Bingman at 237-0019; Vickie Cox at 237-1411; or Anita Van Zile at 237-3019.
