A New Normal . . . is a term that we have been hearing a lot lately. The problem is, that everyday everything is new, and nothing is normal. One thing that remains the same is that people need one another. There are senior citizens, those living with a disability and other with catastrophic events in their lives that cannot look after the maintanance, let alone repair of their own homes. The everyday actions and interactions of people may have been halted, but the deterioration and disrepair of our most vulnerable neighbors has not.
That is why this year’s Mission Cedar Hill’s Big Week is even more important than the years in the past. With all that is happening, the last thing our Aunt, or grandparents, or brother needs is to worry about their fence that blew down in the storm, or the tree limb that now nearly hangs all the way down to the sidewalk. We can help. In these few, three days, June 4 – 6th, 2020, we can make a lasting difference in many of our neighbors lives.
Our City has done a fantastic job reaching out to our senior citizens. And while we check on them, we are becomig aware of an increasing amount of help needed in their lives on their property. But becoming aware of it is the easy part. Doing something about it is the important part. We need volunteers. We need LOTS of volunteers. And with this years issues and recomendations, we cannot make last mintute asignments and adjustments like we have in the past years. We need to asign every volunteer to a specific job site and Captian days in advance to ensure their safety and the safety of our neighbors.
So we ask you . . . Please, go to our website and sign-up to volunteer for this years Mission Cedar Hill’s Big Event, Thursday – Saturday, June 4 – 6th, 2020. The work begins at 7:30 AM, lunch is provided, and ends at 4:30 PM each day. You will be contacted after you register to volunteer on the “Join Mission Cedar Hill” page. You will be asigned to a Job Captian and address along with all of the latest information required for a safe, productive day of service.
Tell you friends, and HURRY, please. Due to all of the extra steps for organization and safety, registration closes Friday, May 29th. But you still have time! Sign up, call your friends, and spread the joy of serving others. There is nothing like it on the planet. God bless you for your generousity with your time, talents, and resources.
