JS home repair group prepares for third year

JERSEY SHORE –Transform Jersey Shore Area (TJSA) is seeking applications from those from within the Jersey Shore area who have life situations — financial inabilities, physical limitations, or lack of family support — that have prevented much needed home repairs from being completed.

Examples of projects include constructing handicapped access ramps, demolition and debris clean-up, drywall, painting, yard work, roof, porch/steps, and kitchen repairs, windows, gutters, and other heavy cleaning.

In the first two years of TJSA, 60 projects were completed by about 90 volunteers.

The program is also looking for volunteers.

The work week this year will be Aug. 7 -11. Workers start each day at 7 a.m. with breakfast and prayer, then go to work sites. Lunch and snacks are brought to each of the work sites, and the work day ends at approximately 4 p.m. Volunteers do not have to be skilled; there are project leaders on each site.

Homeowners and volunteers may go to the TJSA web site to apply for help or register to work: trinity-jersey-shore.diocpa.org/transform-jersey-shore-area.html.

There will be an informational meeting on Monday, May 8, at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 236 S. Main St., Jersey Shore. Applications and registrations will be accepted there.
