How to Use Faith In Action:
Home & Neighborhood Improvement Crews
Our Community Action teams can tackle almost any job for those who lack the means or the know how. Friends and neighbors recommend projects, and our teams get it done. We have provided safe floors and handrails, walkways for wheelchairs, heavy lifting for single moms, yard work for seniors, painting, roofing, plumbing, and more. Each year during National Volunteer Week, our Community Action Teams partner with Franklin Pierce Schools to bring thousands of dollars of campus improvements to local campuses engaging hundreds of volunteers from the community.
OSLC Car Shop
Transportation is an essential part of economic stability. The OSLC Car Shop seeks to provide dependable transportation to those who can least afford it. Our certified mechanics take on the tough jobs while volunteers help with oil changes and minor repairs.
Our garden produces thousands of pounds of produce every year. This garden is for everyone to enjoy. Friends and neighbors are welcome to join us to plant, cultivate, and harvest.
Backpacks 4 Kids
Each week during the school year, we serve over 300 kids in Franklin Pierce through our Backpacks 4 Kids program.
