We are again this year participating in Christmas in October. This program provides a service to the dear neighbor who is unable to maintain her or his home. Activities in the past have included painting, winterizing, building or repairing decks, and other things that some elderly or disabled people need to live in dignity and comfort. The event will be Saturday, October 12 this year. What a great way to spend Homecoming morning as an Avila community. Serve the community then football in the afternoon. We need your help! If you can help us send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or get more information. Family and friends are all welcome to join our team too. When we know the strength of our volunteer group, we will be able to select a house. Thank you for considering this opportunity to serve the dear neighbor.
