Eight youth and four adults traveled 2,370 miles from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Leeds to provide a week of intense community volunteering through the Rural Community Action Ministry. They stayed at the Leeds Community Church. They added a coat of paint to decks at the senior shelter, worked in the gardens, assisted in the replacing of a deck and did interior painting for a local client, and spent time with residents at the Meadows in Greene. The group attended a yoga class, visited Popham and Stinchfield beaches, picked strawberries and climbed to the summit of Mt. Pisgah.
