Local Women Help Prepare Nuestra Casa for Renovation

After several neighborhood clean-up days, plus a Hope College service day at  Nuestra Casa, a Women’s Service Day crew did final prep work for renovation–removing electrical wires, nails, and other debris.

It was all part of an annual event that’s been going on for 10 years in our community. This year, 111 women signed up. And a number of them worked at Nuestra Casa, as well as in the Westcore Neighborhood.

In addition to the renovation preparation, the crew also did some landscaping around the property.

And, Women’s Service Day, which coordinated some fundraising efforts, raised $2,400 that will be applied toward construction materials.
