The Appalachia Service Project is a hands-on home repair ministry that is sponsored locally by the Jesse Lee Church. It is about making a huge difference for families who live in the mountains of West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, some of the most poverty-stricken areas of our country. We work to make their homes warmer, safer, and drier.
Prior to our nine-day trip, there is intensive power tool safety training, cultural education, and fund raising. The trip is open to any student currently in the ninth grade and above. We encourage all youth and adults from Ridgefield or surrounding communities to participate, regardless of their faith affiliation.
