All across the state, from Little Rock to Magnolia, the youth of Ozark Mission Project are giving back this summer by painting, building, and volunteering.
The Program Committee Chair,Renee Henson says that they are just looking for projects that kids can do. They work for clients they call neighbors, completing 25 houses this week and totaling 250 homes this summer.
Some of their clients come from organizations such as the Area Agency on Aging, home health care services and local food banks. The youth and young adults help out around homes of the elderly by performing even the smallest of tasks, such as changing a light bulb.
This projects helps the youth by bridging the gap between the generations by emphasizing conversations, which is a routine part of their work.
The students will be working hard all summer long and if you would like to be a part of the mission or know of someone who needs assistance, you can visit any United Methodist Church in Arkansas or go by their website at www.ozarkmissionproject.org
