Today marked the first day our Common Cup churches worked on the bedroom we officially adopted at the downtown Xenia building which is being refurbished for homeless families in Greene County.
Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) presently helps homeless families at another site in Xenia which does not provide overnight accommodations. Once this new facility is ready for occupancy, families won't have to travel to other churches each night for sleeping arrangements.
We were small in numbers today, but had a Common Cup flavor with two of our United Methodist churches represented. Today, we sanded down the first application of mud on the dry wall of the bedroom and some of our Common Cup members helped to fix a door (see picture.)
How exciting to know that when this building opens, Common Cup will have contributed to the remodeling of one of the several rooms in this needed facility for the homeless.
A lot more needs to be done to get our room ready, but at least we got off to a good start today!
