March 29, 2013. Resort Area Ministries, Inc. (RAM) is now taking applications for Summer Mission work projects. Any low-income family, individual, senior citizen or those who own their own homes and cannot do their own labor because of illnesses or physical impairments may be eligible for RAM’s projects. The projects that qualify include houses that need painting; simple carpentry or repair jobs on porches, decks, steps or interiors; roofing houses; yard work and cleaning projects.
RAM’s Rack Thrift Shop in Boone helps provide funding for these projects. RAM’s budget for the work projects is limited. If the recipients or their families ar
e able to help pay for the cost of the materials (paint, lumber, etc.), this help is greatly appreciated but not required. If someone would like to donate materials or monies to help with these projects, you may contact the RAM office. RAM is a nonprofit organization so donations are tax deductible.
RAM has six mission groups already scheduled to assist with work projects this summer. The projects will take place from June through August 2013. Projects may have to be rescheduled or canceled due to rainy or cold weather.
If you would like to apply or know someone who would like to apply, contact Mary Dean Silver, Missions Director, 828-264-6605. Applications for the work projects may be picked up at the RAM’s Rack Thrift Shop, 877 West King Street, Boone, NC.
