‘Released’ II: Members disperse to work in community

Approximately 200 Temple members volunteered their efforts Sunday, May 29, scattering to various sites in Ruston to help individuals and organizations in many ways.

Unlike the cold, rainy day for the first “Released” session Jan. 30, Sunday’s warm, sunny weather provided opportunities for work outside as well as inside. Overall, the group’s activities included yard work; putting up wallboard; singing, visiting and playing games at retirement homes; processing donated material at a thrift shop; moving, boxing and organizing items for volunteer agencies; and general cleaning.

Deacon-led teams of volunteers worked at the following sites: the Arbor, Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Louisiana Tech University, Boys and Girls Club, Christian Community Action, several housing units at Louisiana Tech University, Life Choices, Rolling Hills Ministries, the Russ House, two private homes, Temple’s mission house and mission trailer, and Ruston Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

More pictures from the day’s activities will be posted later.
