Foothills Community Chapel youth pick it up

Published 10:14pm Monday, June 24, 2013

On Saturday, June 29, Foothills Community Chapel youth will be cleaning up 100 miles of local county roads, raising money for their annual summer mission.

This event serves a dual purpose – to clean up local highways and fund this summer’s youth mission trip. This summer’s trip starts July 14, traveling to Falcon Children’s Home near Fayetteville, N.C.

The youth ask for the community’s help in supporting the highway cleanup and their desire to help those children who are less fortunate.

Anyone wishing to make a tax-deductible contribution, can contact Rob Painter at 828-606-5589, Dewayne Helmuth at 828-817-2549 or Landon Schlabach at 828-817-5058.
