Over winter break, 16 brothers traveled down to Hammond, Louisiana to spend a week working with the Ginger Ford Nothshore Fuller Center for Housing. Brothers traveled more than 1600 miles for this service trip where they were able to make an immediate impact in this community of approximately 20,000 people.
Brothers worked over 600 hours within the week to ensure they finished their projects on time. While they were there, brothers were able to build two wheel chair ramps for disabled men and women, and complete flood repairs on a home belonging to a Korean war veteran and his wife.
A couple that had previously received services from the Fuller Center wanted to thank the brothers for their hard work. They hosted the brothers for a home-made lunch and shared stories about the holiday season and the impact of the Fuller Center in their own lives and community. The trip was a great experience that will not be forgotten by those who went and those we helped.
