Conway, SC – Weekly Report – July 22-26, 2019

August 7, 2019

We had two groups at the project this week – a youth group from Canada and another one from Pennsylvania, plus two of our cooks who are on the work crew this week. 

This was the last week that MDS Year-Long Volunteer Raven was with us and also the last week for our Hesston College Disaster Management Program students Levi and Jon.

This project closes on August 2 so we are focusing on finishing up the houses of our clients. Progress this week:

  • Huggins – painted window trim and doors, installed countertop and sink, installed trim
  • Frazier – painting inside and outside, installed kitchen cabinets and countertop, installed flooring
  • Jimetta Sherman – finished mudding and sanding, 3 coats of paint, installed flooring
  • Garner – rebuilt a wall, some mudding and taping, installed flooring, installed toilet in bathroom, started installing doors
  • Spain – started and finished this project this week! Repaired the floor and installed flooring, also some touch-up painting.
  • We also did some clean-up at houses we finished last week.

It was still hot this week, but only in the mid-80s, not the mid-90s like previous weeks.
