Camp 151 Campers Begin Renovations On Local Homeless Shelter

Six Homes Being Renovated
“This shelter has needed work for a very long time and we are so appreciative of the members of Camp 151 for helping us turn this place around,” Pastor Dawn Jones states.
The campers of Camp 151 began performing repairs on six homes this past Monday, including the local homeless shelter, located at 302 South Gaskin Avenue. Each year, the campers gather together for one week to repair homes of those in need, with this year being the first year that they have renovated a multi-family home.
“This is actually the first time we have ever done a multi-family home so this has been amazing. We are just grateful that we could partner up and help out. The church has truly blessed us by allowing us to be able to help,” Camp 151 Assistant Site Leader Rachel Calhoun states.
