FAHFH and Fayetteville Area Operation Inasmuch Partner for the 20th Annual Blitz Day

Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity (FAHFH) and Fayetteville Area Operation Inasmuch partnered to be “the hands and feet of Christ in the cBlitz Day logoommunity” for the 20th anniversary of Blitz Day. On March 21, 2015, volunteers from area churches will complete home repair and weatherization projects for homeowners in Habitat’s Buxton Village, among other outreach duties. All the work will be done at no charge to the homeowners.

“We are honored to work alongside Operation Inasmuch for the 20th anniversary of Blitz Day,” said Tammy Laurence, FAHFH executive director. “This is a nonprofit partner that believes in putting God’s love into action to build hope.”

“This is our gift to the community,” said Sue Byrd, FAOIAM executive director. “We become the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to serve our neighbors and families, especially the Habitat families who work so hard to achieve homeownership.”

Over 200 volunteers are being recruited through area churches and will be commissioned to various projects. Projects include, but are not limited to, construction and home repair; ministry teams; hospitality; and crafts and music time with neighborhood youth. The Blitz Day will conclude with a neighborhood block party for residents, their families, and all volunteers.

Some of the churches involved and currently recruiting volunteers for Blitz Day include First Baptist of Moore Street; First Baptist Anderson Street; Snyder Memorial Baptist Church; Haymont United Methodist Church; St. James Lutheran; Church of the Apostles; Campground United Methodist Church; Village Baptist Church; Knights of Columbus, Ft. Bragg; Cumberland United Methodist Church.
