We are in need of volunteers for Service Saturday.  In conjunction with Ohio’s Make a Difference Day, volunteers will help work on house projects throughout central Ohio for the elderly and most vulnerable among us.  Last year we worked on 16 projects and are looking to make an even bigger impact this year!  Mark your calendars for October 27 from 9am until 3:00pm. We can use your help, even if you have only a few hours.  We will meet at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in German Village between 8:30 and 9:00 AM for training and assignments.  Lunch will be provided at your work site.  If you are unable to volunteer, please consider making a tax deductible gift to St. Mary’s, and include Service Saturday in the memo section.  All money will go directly to helping needy families have the homes they deserve.  To Make a Difference contact Jason Shanks at 445-9668, ext. 119.  To volunteer, sign up in the back of Church.
