Volunteer high school students of Halos and Hammers, a nonprofit ministry organization, are in Greenbrier County from Connecticut to help renovate an abandoned building.
Upon its completion, the building will become the next headquarters for Alderson Minister Association. There are plans for a thrift store inside, and another level will be added on top for temporary housing for the homeless.
“This group here, their vision is to reach out to an area like this and be a blessing,” says Anthony Carter of the Alderson Minister Association. “And this is what church should be all about; reaching out to communities and being a blessing to people.”
Carter tells us the building itself cost Alderson Minister Association more than $40,000. This week alone Halos and Hammers has put in $10,000 worth of renovations.
The building is expected to be finished by sometime in the winter.
