Regional Mission Trip Opportunity
A tornado struck Cookeville on March 5, 2020. 14 people were killed and much of the town was devastated by the storm. We will be working through Inspiritus again this year. They are working with the County and all of the churches and many of the non-profits and businesses in the area. All levels of construction skills are welcome - helper, have done repairs and maintenance at home or worked on Habitat house, or experienced.
Just to give you an idea about the work that is ahead of them…. Inspiritus is currently coordinating 143 repair/remodel of homes. Plus 39 complete rebuilds. These homeowners need help either due to being uninsured, underinsured, or there is a conflict with the insurance company. Cookeville is a 6 hour drive from Matthews and an 8 hour drive from SSI.
So we can begin planning, please let me know if your answer to this call for assistance is yes, no, or maybe. Thanks so much for considering this mission opportunity. We will practice safety guidelines related to COVID as needed to keep us working safely and based on the current TN guidelines.
When: October 25-31
Where: Cookeville, TN
