Join Us for Yard Clean Up Day

It's time for Fall once again, and we all know that that means- yard work! This time of year it can be a challenge to keep all our support homes in top shape as leaves are falling and autumn storms create such messes in our yards. However, our volunteers have always been the greatest at helping with this! Assisting with yard work is a very practical and easy way to serve at Immerse during this season, and because it is such a recurring need we are now hosting "Yard Work Days" in which anyone can sign up to come help on a particular day and team up with other volunteers to get the job done. If this sounds like a fun way to serve to you, grab some friends and family and sign up to come help out on this day! ** We will be meeting at the 5300 address at 9am, then heading to a support home to get to work. If you have any tools or items that would be helpful, please bring them along!
