For about 20 hours on Friday and Saturday, November 11-12, 150+ church members and friends helped to transform the Stormbreak Shelter for teenage girls from a worn residential shelter to a warm and inviting residence for about 6-9 girls. The $25,000 project was funded by SCPC’s faith fund.
It was a full make-over: new flooring was installed, fresh paint was put on the walls, new plates and silverware adorned the dining table, light fixtures were updated, the staircase hand rails were refurbished, the kitchen and windows were cleaned, and new furniture was delivered. Children from the LOGOS program made decorate art work for the girl’s room and other volunteers sewed curtains at The Makery (thank you Amy Frank!), and others provided snacks to the workers. It was truly a labor of love. Everyone came back to celebrate the success with a luncheon at the church on Saturday afternoon.
Thanks to Sharon Ambrose, and Phil Spangler who coordinated the countless details for the project and Mike Ozaki who led up the mission team.
