The Poteet Ministerial Alliance is sponsoring the UMARMY returning to Poteet this summer from June 10-June 16.
The team is bringing 70 high school age students with adult volunteers to come and spend a week working on homes to provide top-notch home repairs and improve the quality of life for the needy in our community.
These volunteers are committed to sharing their love of Jesus Christ through real life mission and ministry combining their strengths meeting home-repair and maintenance needs for low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners who are financially unable to make the needed repairs themselves.
Last summer the UMARMY made significant repairs to twenty-five homes in Poteet, including building wheelchair ramps, replacing windows and siding, painting. One home even received major renovations
and repairs completed to the only bathroom in the house. This was special because normally plumbing work is beyond the scope of repair for the UMARMY but the adult volunteers saw the need and made it happen anyway.
The requirements for receiving
this free home repair assistance are simple: there must be a bona-fide need, and the residents must own the home that is being repaired. Anyone desiring consideration for this free assistance may pick up an application from the Poteet City Hall, Poteet United Methodist Church, Hosanna
Baptist Church, or First Baptist Church of Poteet.
Anyone who would like to contribute to this effort or for more information please call Pastor Joe Berkley, Poteet United Methodist Church, 210-833-0192. The Poteet Ministerial
Alliance is a committee of the Poteet Community Forum
