Getting Down and Dirty in Indiana

| |

Teens and adults from six Christian Reformed churches in the Chicago area recently got “down and dirty” in Gary, Ind. They were there to help homeowners clean up moldy messes resulting from flooding in 2008.

The group of 23 mucked out and gutted five homes in one day. The volunteers came from Hyde Park CRC and Pullman CRC in Chicago, Orland Park (Ill.) CRC, Calvin CRC (Oak Lawn, Ill.), Bridge Community CRC (Frankfort, Ill.), and First CRC (South Holland, Ill.).
