Skilled Construction/Home Repair Volunteers Needed for Flood Recovery!
The Salvation Army Midland Division is in need of skilled volunteers with home repair experience to assist Spring 2017 flood survivors! The long-term recovery from the Spring 2017 storms is still ongoing. There are numerous homeowners throughout the St. Louis region still in need of volunteer assistance to make their homes safe and livable again. The Salvation Army has the materials to do the job, now all we need is skilled volunteers to help us get it done! This is a perfect opportunity for folks who have done this kind of work on prior mission trips and have some experience under their belts. Please contact us if you are interested.
Common tasks include:
Demolition and framing repair
Installing insulation and drywall
Other household tasks
Help people express themselves through art! Participants will learn how to paint using watercolors, oils, acrylics, color pencils, and markers. Volunteers provide assistance to individuals as they develop their artistic skills.
A fresh coat of paint will be provided to seniors in low-income apartments who are able to prep for the painters by moving furniture away from walls. For seniors who do not have family able to help, we are seeking volunteers. Volunteers are needed for 2-4 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May 8th - July 19th. If you are able to lend a hand on any or all of those dates, we would love to hear from you!
If you’re interested in playing in community leagues, having fun, meeting new friends, and improving your softball skills, then this is just the team for you! Arc United consists of athletes of all abilities. We are expanding to two teams this summer: one will compete in Shaw Park and the other will play in a South County league that will be determined closer to the start of the season. We are currently looking for assistant coaches.
This is an inclusive league of all ability levels: if you are interested in playing, please notify the volunteer coordinator.
