Paradise Adventist Church Community Outreach (CA) Project
The Paradise Seventh-day Adventist Church (CA) Community Outreach Project is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects.
Almost one year ago, the Camp Fire swept over the Paradise community, devastating more than 20,000 acres, and left very little unscathed. Maranatha volunteers are being asked to assist the Paradise Adventist Church with a community outreach initiative. Some people who lost their homes are currently living in campers and RV’s, with no space to store their belongings. Maranatha volunteers will assist in constructing 200 storage sheds (10 x 12 feet) for members of this community.
Due to the lack of infrastructure in the surrounding community, housing for volunteers will be dorm style in the Paradise Adventist School classrooms. Although parts of the school have been affected by the fire and therefore not in operation, the classrooms and kitchen are intact. This will also be the place for our meals. The school is across the street from the church parking lot where we will be working. There is plenty of space for RV’s. We are currently working on electrical hookups.
Please consider joining us on this project and don’t forget your tools!
Completed 202 storage sheds: a total of 24,240 sq ft.
