The James Project is a community of Christians committed to demonstrating God’s love by serving the local body, and our community through home repair and related services. Home repair services are available to single parents, low income individuals, senior citizens, special needs families, the disabled, and many others.
We’re a team of volunteers serving together in a large group for bi-monthly events. We typically need 30-60+ volunteers for each event. We appreciate it if you sign-up in advance, but drop-in volunteers are always welcome!
Here are some ongoing opportunities to serve in the James Project:
Home Repair Team
This team is led by Sam D’Afflito and goes out during the week about once or twice a month to do minor repairs and maintenance. The requests come in from widows, disabled, and people going through a difficult time financially. Contact Sam directly at [email protected] or 845-489-5328.
Yard Care (Mary Folk)
Joelle Brumbaugh leads our yard care team. We need between 6-8 volunteers to get the team started. In 2014, the James Project helped Mary Folk, who is confined to a wheelchair, by cleaning up her property. Mary has no family, and is physically unable to care for her yard, so we are adopting her yard. We would like get a team to go out together to get the yard up to speed, then each person will take 1 or 2 months out of the year to weed and trim. If you are able to help this sweet lady please contact Joelle directly at [email protected] or 951-741-6879.
Yard Care (Campbell Family)
The Men’s Ministry has volunteered to take care of the Campbell’s yard for the next year, but if you would like to help this wonderful family and get in the roster once a year, then please contact Steve Campbell directly at [email protected] or 951-751-4934.
Do you have a green thumb?
Help us provide plantings for upcoming projects by cultivating plants from your garden! We are looking for just about all types of plants. If you like to garden, we could use your help! Take cuttings from your succulents, trees, and plants and get them growing! Let us know when they are ready for transplant and we will use them for one of our upcoming projects! Contact Nancy Anderson at 951-733-9995 for details.
If you enjoy baking, the James Project would love your help! We provide snacks to our volunteers to keep them hydrated and energized for the scheduled Saturday work days. If you would like to bake cookies or breakfast items for one of our events, please let us know. Our volunteers would appreciate your generosity and home-baked goods! Contact Kevin Cain to sign up.
