Episcopal Youth help with Home Repairs

July 13, 2016 | By Rob

 On June 21st the youth CUSE, which is a service group from Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston, helped paint the exterior of Mr. Wells’ house on Melbourne. The house looked incomplete from the outside with very spotty painting all around and an unpainted porch. CUSE brought 15 volunteers ranging from grade 5 through grade 10 to help paint the house. Mr. Wells was very grateful and was constantly checking in on the youth, getting them food and drink when they needed it. The youth worked in the middle of a summer day in 100 degree heat and never complained, they understood that they were helping someone in need and they were grateful for the opportunity. Mr. Wells is now very happy with the new paint on his house and he is very proud to show off his home.
