Another Successful URDC Volunteer Day with FUMCOG

Hats off to the hardworking volunteers from First United Methodist Church of Germantown (FUMCOG) who shared their love in Germantown on June 17. As part of FUMCOG’s 5th annual Marion Taylor Work Day with URDC, volunteers performed repairs for a homeowner on Pastorius Street, just four blocks from the church.

Work included demolition in the kitchen and back shed – six loads of debris was hauled away and taken to the dump. Other congregations who will follow with additional volunteers include Mishkan Shalom in Roxborough and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Germantown. For those who missed it, we look forward to next year’s 6th annual day of service.
