Summer Mission Project

SMP 2021

Fairfax, VA

Saturday, June 19 & Saturday, June 26

We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with an organization called Facets for two opportunities to serve the local community for this year's Summer Mission Project!

While the COVID-19 pandemic will once again prevent us from a week-long trip, we will be working at two of Facets' group homes on Saturday, June 19 and Saturday, June 26 from 8:30am to 2:00pm. When registering, participants will be able to sign up for whichever day suits their schedule best, or both!

Facets requires a minimum of 12 participants for each Saturday. No more than 20 participants will allow us to work within COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. The minimum age to participate is 14.

COVID-19 vaccines are not required, but they are recommended. Current protocols will be followed in terms of masks, etc. There is no fee to participate, but participants will be asked to complete a volunteer form and attend a brief orientation session conducted by Facets.

Logistics

Projects will include painting, minor home repairs, yard work, etc. These will be rain-or-shine events, with tasks happening both indoors and outdoors.

Participants should bring a bag lunch. Water and a cooler will be provided. As the dates get closer, we will provide additional details on the exact tasks to be done and what, if any, tools would be helpful to bring.

Transportation details will also be arranged as the dates get closer. We will arrange carpools or provide directions so that participants can meet us at the work site.

Picnic

To celebrate completion of another Summer Mission Project, we will host a picnic in the evening of Saturday, June 26 (location TBD).

Registration for the picnic will be required to ensure we keep within Lewinsville's COVID-19 policy in terms of crowd size, social distancing guidelines, etc., and to plan food appropriately.
