Warmer, Safer, Drier: St. Paul's Partnership with Appalachia Service Project

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is embarking on its sixth mission trip with Appalachia Service Project, a nonprofit based in Johnson City, TN, that has been providing home repair and construction assistance for people living in rural poverty for the past 50 years. To date, 56 youth and adults from St. Paul's have participated in at least one weeklong mission trip; this year we plan to take four crews, totaling 29 people. The services ASP and its volunteers provide are free to the homeowners. St. Paul's is raising money to pay for our transportation to and from West Virginia.
