*New* Migrant Camp Housing Rehabilitation
Westside United Methodist Church has had an outreach ministry to a migrant camp for 18 years. There are 4 trailers provided for the migrants and families to live in while they work on the farm, however, over the past year it has been noticed that they could use some love and work repairs. All supplies is being provided to us by the farm so all we need is some power tools and hard workers.  Donald Krachinski is heading this project up.

Projects to be done:
  • Replacing floors
  • Patching up roofs
  • Fixing lights, doors, and smoke-detectors
  • Cleaning!!
Also! There will be a prep-work day on February 27th. Contact Donald at for more information and if you are interested in participating in this extra day of action!
