Early 2019 Project
“Minga’s Makeover” in the North 40
A local senior couple who live in the North 40 (near DS United Methodist Church) have a mobile home in desperate need of new siding. The husband is on dialysis and can't physically do this type of work. His wife has several jobs and is a hard worker. They saved up enough money to buy the siding, but recently had to dip into that fund for some unexpected medical bills. They still have a significant sum to put toward the siding with Hometown Missions covering the rest of the costs.
We need some skilled and semi-skilled volunteers with tools to remove the old siding, install Tyvek water barrier and then hang the new Hardie board siding. Below are the details for upcoming workdays.
We plan to do the work over three weekends, weather permitting. We will only remove a portion of the siding at one time and then install the Tyvek and new siding.
Saturday, February 23 Begin Project. Remove siding, install Tyvek and install new siding.
We completed about 35% of the siding this weekend.
Saturday, March 2 More of the same.
Saturday, March 9 More of the same and finish up.

And our wonderful student population won’t be left out! DSISD High School is having a community wide service day On March 12-13. High school students will be priming and painting the new siding for Minga and her husband. They will also be painting Liza’s new home we finished in December.
