For one weekend in September emphasis is on leaving the building behind and touching lives throughout our community and around the world. Volunteers don bright orange shirts and hit the streets to complete a variety of projects. Past projects have included:
- Assembling food boxes that will be distributed throughout Missouri and health kits that will be sent around the globe.
- Our Lady's Inn helpers help with yard work, organize food donations, clean up play rooms, make lunch for residents and staff and enjoy time with the children.
- Singers visit residents at area nursing homes and join them in singing their favorite hymns.
- The Emmaus Home team helps spruce up the Marthasville campus through yard work, cleaning and even helping some residents move into new surroundings.
- Singers vist area nursing homes and make a little joyful noise.
- Delivering hot meals to area homebound neighbors and friends.
