By |2020-07-03T13:34:09-05:00June 14th, 2019|CRC NEWS & UPDATES, News & Updates|

In the past two years, St. Andrew’s volunteers have swarmed the new shelter, demolishing the interior, painting, drywalling and installing windows.

The new shelter depends on support from 13 other churches, and Mason is looking for others. The member churches will provide hundreds of volunteers needed to staff the shelter.
