Maranatha Volunteers International were in Paradise from November 5 - 26 to build 200 storage sheds for those who were burned out by the Camp Fire. You can read more about this project in the monthly News Notes.
If you really love Paradise, you might want to get involved with an event coming up on April 20 - 22. Love Paradise is a team of volunteers from faith communities, non-profits and community business and civic clubs.
The program is affiliated with Love Our Cities, a faith-based program of community involvement. Twice a year, volunteers undertake projects to maintain and beautify our town that would otherwise not get done. Some are on private property. Others are outside the scope of the town’s responsibility.
Pastor Garrison Chaffee manages the Love Paradise project. “We’re still looking for businesses and non-profits to partner with us for materials and tools for projects, such as brooms, rakes, shovels, paint, etc.” They also need some partners to step up for larger funding for projects, such as helping a family in need get into an abandoned home by helping make it livable and safe again!
You can read about Paradise Adventist Academy's involvement in last October's event on page 32 of the January 2018 edition of the Pacific Union Recorder.
