Rock Bridge Church Youth Help Catoosa Habitat For Humanity

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Over 10 volunteer youth from Rock Bridge came out on Saturday to help Catoosa Habitat clean-up a local resident’s home. The volunteers were members of the Youth Group of Rock Bridge Community Church in Ringgold.

Campus and Youth Pastor J.C. Groves felt called to do a project in the community and he knew Catoosa Habitat was the first place to ask.

“I’ve been hearing great things about what they’ve been accomplishing in the community and I wanted the youth to be able to come out and help,” he said.

Among the tasks that the youth accomplished was the cleaning of gutters and debris off the roof of the residence. The youth group also helped do yard work and general clean-up around the home. “The homeowners here are so thankful for the help they received,” said Penny Mahon, Catoosa Habitat’s executive director. “Both are elderly and having the youth group from Rock Bridge come out has really made a difference in their lives.”

Volunteers also enjoyed a lunch provided by Chick-fil-A of Fort Oglethorpe. “We are thankful for Chick-fil-A’s continued support of our causes and we always appreciate their donation of food,” said Ms. Mahon. “Providing food for our volunteers is just one of the many ways an organization can become involved in our cause to eliminate poverty housing.”
