Report on Appalachia Mission Trip

Over the summer, seven adults and five youth traveled to Appalachia to assist with home repair projects.

ABLE’s main projects involved rebuilding a concrete step stone path down a hill and installing a handrail.  Inside the home we attempted to repair a leaking fiber glass shower by layering on cloth reinforced fiber glass and coating the area with two layers of epoxy coating.  Our other project involved making repairs to termite damage at an older home by removing and replacing damaged walls and underpinning in two areas.

Several ABLE volunteers also worked at the St Vincent Mission in David, KY arranging merchandise in the store, remodeling office space and cleaning the Volunteer House.
