Additional sites around the community include Ready, Set, Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility in Plainfield; Community Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Naperville; Sweet Charity Resale in Montgomery; and Morning Star Mission in Joliet.
Tasks at each job site may include painting, landscaping and cleaning. These projects will be done from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
As an extension of this effort, Calvary Church members are donating backpacks filled with supplies for students in need. These backpacks will go to the following schools: Fischer Middle School, Georgetown Elementary, Gombert Elementary, Still Middle School and Waubonsie Valley High School.
The project is part "All Things New," a churchwide initiative to lead others to the good news of the God who makes all things new.
