ABLE Youth: Volunteering Over the Holidays

This holiday season, our ABLE Youth took pause in the hustle and bustle to give back to others.  In November, ABLE Youth spent an evening filling packages with various items including non-perishable food and toiletries for those serving in the military.  They wrapped books and games to be included in the packages along with hand-written Christmas cards.  A short video was also made to wish those serving a very Merry Christmas.  In December, the youth delivered Christmas gifts and dinner to three families. Enjoy these photos of our youth in action!

Report on Appalachia Mission Trip

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.

Enjoy some photos from this amazing trip!

Low Country Boil Success

In August, friends of ABLE gathered to enjoy food, friends and fun to raise money for the 2018 Jamaica Mission Trip!  The Low Country Boil was a tremendous success with nearly 80 people gathering to raise money for the Mustard Seed Community in Montego Bay, Jamaica.   Enjoy some pictures from this beautiful night with great friends supporting a great cause!
