Youth Service Project (YSP) 2020
For more than 45 years high school youth have given time to serve others through disaster and poverty relief. Projects through the years have been as far away as New Mexico and Yakima, Washington and have included home repair work in inner cities, on Native American reservations, suburban areas, rural areas and areas recovering from flooding and hurricanes.
This year the group of youth with adult leaders had to change plans because of the pandemic, but were able to work locally in Thompson, Ohio from June 21 through the 27. The YSP work team helped Mabel and Vic, members of Thompson UMC, rebuild their home. In 2016, they lost a large portion of the house due to a fire.
The YSP group is grateful for the continuing support of our congregation!
