I have found my way of serving the Church and our community through helping those that have served our Country.
For ten years, I worked with a group of dedicated people sending Care Boxes to our troops serving overseas. I was the "mouth piece", organizer, and shopped each month for the items to go into the boxes. There was a group of 15 to 20 met once a month to pack the boxes, catch up on someone’s "soldier", and jump for joy when one returned home. Those years were so rewarding, and I always wonder if we will need to do again will there be someone to pick up the torch and go with it.?
A year ago, I informed the group I would be giving up the cause, and taking up a new one. I had been asked to start a group to build a home in Elmwood for a Hero. So, here I am again, working with some of the same great people, Habitat for Humanity, and Congressman Aaron Schock. This Hero is someone who has served, or is still serving in the military.
The family awarded this home will not get it free. They do sweat equity (500 hours), and they will pay for this home, minus labor costs. They will have a 20 years, no interest loan. Habitat motto "A hand up, not a hand out."
This home will be built on So. Locust St. The wonderful people of Elmwood have made a very daunting cause, easy. Businesses, individuals, Churches, have all come forward to help.
To me, this has been a learning experience in watching God work through me, to help others.
