Abingdon Episcopal Church Youth Mission to the Roanoke Valley

Roanoke Mission --  July 1-8, 2017

 

The Abingdon Mission Team Members

Six of Abingdon's youth, aged 14-18, and three adult chaperones traveled to the Roanoke Valley of Virginia  this summer.

The Mission Team's Work

We partnered with REACH to address areas of concerns like

  • substandard housing (home repair & renovation),
  • homelessness (all facets),
  • hunger (distribution and collection),
  • environmental impact (parks, rivers, neighborhoods, community gardens…),
  • animal care (SPCA & Zoo) ,
  • at risk youth and children (camps, games, recreation, tutoring, cooking classes, vbs…),
  • older adult care (music, ice cream socials, cell phones…),
  • and assimilation of immigrants into the Roanoke community.
