NIU Monday – March 13th

We were greeted this morning to beautiful sunshine and fairly mild weather.  We know this will be changing soon, so we made sure to appreciate it while it was here. The students were spread out over the county working on three different projects. One group went to Baileysville Head Start and spent the day helping the teachers work with the kids, aged 3-5 years old. Not only did they get to work with the kids in the classroom, they rode the bus with the kids when they were dropped off at the end of the day. By all reports it was a great day.

A second group went to the St. Vincent de Paul warehouse to load up housewares that were then brought to the Itmann Food Bank. The students unpacked the housewares and put them on the shelves so they would be ready for distribution day on Friday. During the day they learned about the great work that both St. Vincent de Paul and the Itmann Food Bank do.

The third group worked at our home repair site off Cabin Creek road outside of Itmann. We started working with these two sisters last summer and had promised to come back and do some indoor work this spring. Today the volunteers, with the help of home repair guru Dan, put two windows into one of the bedrooms that only had plastic covering the holes and fixed a hole in the drywall in the other bedroom. We will be continuing to work on this house during the week doing several different projects.

The weather for tomorrow looks like it might be a challenge, so say a little prayer that we will be able to go about our planned projects tomorrow, and not be snowed in….

In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures from the crew who went to the Itmann Food Bank today. We will add more pictures from the other activities as we get them
