Methodist Church serves community

March 18, 2006

Albany -- Saturday was the perfect day for members of Albany's United Methodist Church to do some volunteer work around town. More than 400 church members were part of the annual "Great Day of Service" project.

The members serve the Albany community by helping others or doing work to improve businesses or parks. Some volunteers came to the SOWEGA Council on Aging downtown office to paint trim and benches and clean the gutters, and the council says it is thankful.

"Not only are they doing all the work, they are supplying all the material, and it really helps the senior center out, especially this year since we are having a little money problem," said downtown office manager Angelika Smith.

"It just gives me a really good feeling to help people who need it," said volunteer Joyce Campbell.

Other volunteers were out cleaning up Tift Park, doing landscaping at the Parks at Chehaw, and volunteering at a horse show for people with disabilities.
