Kearsarge Workcamp 2012

The Kearsarge Workcamp 2012 is over, but this is what it was all about for those of you who may have missed it.   [nivo source="current-post" speed=500]

Workcamps are organized by Group Cares, a non-profit interdenominational Christian organization that helps challenge students to use their time and energy to make a real difference in their communities and around the world.  At the Kearsarge workcamp, over 400 students and adult leaders from around the country came and worked for a week on home-repair projects for those who who are unable to complete the projects themselves, all at no cost to the homeowner.  A total of 53 families received home repairs.  Locally, as we had done in 2002, 2006, and 2009, we partnered with Casey Family Services as a co-sponsor for the workcamp.   Working throughout the region, crews:

  • Painted
  • Weatherized
  • Built wheelchair ramps
  • Built / repaired decks /stairs
  • Repaired drywall
  • Repaired minor roof damage

A big "Thank you!" to all those of you who helped make it possible!
