More than 75 people lent a helping hand and put in some hard work in a big service project for the Urban Mission in Steubenville.
On Saturday, volunteers at the iServ day mostly included groups from Steubenville High School, Harding Middle School, local church youth groups and 13 juvenile offenders from Frank Abdalla Jr’s program.
Volunteers helped Steubenville’s Urban Mission center with its upkeep including landscaping, sorting clothing, cleaning up, scraping paint and more.
“Yeah, I mean it’s great serving alongside your friends it makes the time go fast and it makes the work easier, and when there’s more people with an upbeat personality and attitude then it makes it a lot easier,” Volunteer Tamika Sutton said.
The Director of the Valley youth workers network Bobbyjon Baughman said all of the volunteers had fun and impressed him with their hard work.
“We can accomplish in one day what might take them 6 months when we have 75 people here on board to help out so, that’s why were here to help and they work with the disenfranchised the under resourced in the community so we’d love to bless them,” Baughman said.
