Sunday, August 7, we welcome Jeff Capps, Executive Director of Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity, who will share about the important work of Habitat in our local area and worldwide. More than 130 homes have been built since 1988 in Linn and Benton Counties by thousands of volunteers, partner families, and organizations like LCR. Come and hear the story of Habitat and how you can help families build homes, community, and hope.
Sunday, August 14, Katie Kascel and our EDGE youth & adults will share stories and video from their recent mission trip to New Orleans. With much of the relief and recovery work from Hurricane Katrina complete in New Orleans, Youth Works, who sets up the experience for our youth, has largely turned its attention to caring for the people of the city. A big part of this includes partnering with children’s programs in the community as well as serving seniors and adults with special needs.
