The roof on our Hagerstown Thrift Store was in desperate need of repair and replacement.
This would have been quite a costly investment but fortunately God provided some wonderful volunteers to help fix our roof and cut the costs of this project!
We’re so thankful for the 40 volunteers who worked hard for more than 30 hours tearing off the old roof and putting the new on.
The volunteers were organized by Arnold Horst who was made aware of this need by our former store manager, AJ Imbach who went to Tri-state Fellowship with Arnold when AJ was employed with us.
The majority of volunteers came from Tri-state Fellowship, including the wonderful volunteers who made sure there was plenty of food & drink for our roofers. In addition to the folks from Tri-state Fellowship we had a former Hope Center resident and his parents volunteer, as well as two current residents in our Foundations Life Recovery program.
Our Hagerstown Thrift Store is a rather long building and replacing the roof was definitely not an easy task. These volunteers worked very efficiently and worked so well together that the project got finished quickly.
We really appreciate Arnold Horst for having a heart for this ministry and for taking the time to help organize the volunteers to complete this project. Thanks to these great volunteers we were able to save money that can be used in other areas to help feed families, provide shelter for the homeless and give kids the opportunity to learn about Christ in a safe environment.
While it may just seem that these volunteers replaced a roof, but to someone in need they made a difference for eternity and only God knows the full impact of their volunteer service to The Hope Center.
Volunteers, thank you so much for giving your time and energy to help improve the quality of our facilities!
