Update! This year's fifth annual Great Day of Service was truly a great day! Nearly 100 people served at 10 simultaneous project—both records. Thank you to our organizers, Terri and Chip Sakakeeny for a phenomenal job well done! They wish to thank the project leaders for their planning, hard work and skillful leadership of the ten ministries (pictures from the day are below). Thanks also to i Fratelli Pizza and the Roanoke Food Pantry for providing food and bottled water. This year's ministries included:
  • GRACE Transitional Apartments (trim, weed and plant flowers)
  • Meadowood Assisted Living (games and visitation with residents)
  • Mid-Cities Care Corps (yard work and roof repair)
  • Briarwood Retreat Center (fencing project and clean-up)
  • Fill Our Freezer (prepare meals for home-bound members)
  • Women In Stitches (sewing for Special Olympics and cancer patients)
  • Children's Service Camp (mission projects and gardening)
Additional pictures from the day are available in our newsletter.
