#MissionMonday – Appalachia Service Project

Warmer.Safer.Drier.

For the past six years, Nassau Presbyterian Church has partnered with Appalachia Service Project for a week of home repair, service, and to be welcomed as neighbors in a beautiful part of America. Our times spent sleeping on gym floors, crawling around basements, and working on hot roofs have been and remain some of our best memories as a church. And that’s not to mention the sunsets, the ice cream, and the van rides or power tools. With a 50 year history in the region and many deep relationships, ASP has become a major provider of much needed assistance and community—to us all.

While volunteer teams like ours won’t be going to Appalachia this summer, ASP is busier than ever, with almost no volunteers, serving the many counties, communities, and families. We can still be neighbors. We can still serve. We can build a stronger community that overcomes all physical distance with social solidarity. Thank you for your gifts.

Sarah Tel participated in week-long trips with Nassau during her high school years. In 2019 she volunteered with ASP for the entire summer.
