Pleasantville Appalachia Service Project
The Pleasantville ASP volunteers are planning a home repair mission trip to West Virginia in July 2018 as volunteers for the Appalachia Service Project. If you are in the Pleasantville, NY area and would like to volunteer with us in 2018, please download the information package and application form, or contact us at email@example.com.
Each summer we send youth and adult volunteers to Central Appalachia for a week-long home-repair ministry with the Appalachia Service Project, Inc., a Tennessee-based non-profit organization.
Pleasantville Presbyterian Church oversees and organizes the Pleasantville ASP mission and welcomes volunteers from across the community. Most of our volunteers are high-school aged. Youth volunteers must be at least 15 years old and must have finished ninth grade to be eligible to participate.
The ASP mission is much more than just a “trip.” We do local community service, skill-building, team-building, sensitivity training and fundraising during the school year. The summer mission trip and the activities leading up to it are opportunities for personal growth as well as spiritual growth.
It costs about $700 to send each volunteer to Appalachia. A big part of that cost goes to ASP, Inc., which purchases the building materials we use to repair people’s homes. We’re grateful to our supporters and “shareholders” who make this mission possible!
