Make a Difference Day

Saturday morning, October 10th , (rain day Saturday October 17th) Holy Communion will participate in the 2020 SHED (Safe Homes for the Elderly and Disabled as part of University City’s 2020 Month of Service. The event is being organized in collaboration with the City of University City, the University City School district, and other local churches. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to help with gardening, home maintenance and repairs.  No advanced skills needed. All work will be outside and volunteers will wear masks and be socially distanced.
For over a decade SHED has helped coordinate this community-wide effort to assist seniors and disabled residents with home maintenance and repairs. Past events have drawn hundreds of volunteers to work on as many as 40 homes in one day, addressing code violations, health and safety issues, as well as supporting seniors to age in place and maintain the value of their homes.
