Subject: planning a day of service
Hi, Jeff Fleming,
I was just reviewing your blog, and enjoying it! I am seeking information about community organizations in our area that could use some manpower help this Spring. Since you appear to have your finger on the pulse of the community, judging by what I read on your blog this morning, perhaps you can give me good counsel.
On one particular day, this spring, a group of 50 or so people I attend church with plan to give a day of community service. We are looking for what project would be needed by the community, would fit as a one-day project, needs primarily manpower [we do not have funds to buy supplies], and is planned or sponsored by an already existing community organization. Perhaps there are some projects that our local organizations would LIKE to do, if they only had enough manpower. After we identify some suitable projects, our committee will further define what our involvement can be, and then make a decision about where we will put our energy.
Do you have some thoughts you could share with me, on this?
I love living in Kingsport. My family has grown up here, since 1992 when we moved here. Actually, I have family roots that go back two generations in Kingsport, also. My husband and I are both physicians and work here.
The proposed service project would not need to be limited to Kingsport; it could be anywhere in this region. We are still in the exploratory stages currently.
I hope I figured out the right email address to reach you. Replying to my address above is best, since this is not a work related activity.
