Repairing Homes, Restoring Hope



 

The mission of the Small Miracle Foundation is to repair, rehabilitate or otherwise improve dwelling structures of Worcester County residents by focusing on safety, health and warmth.  We thank you for your ongoing support to the work of our organization through your generous contributions during Mission Collections from 2008 through 2016.

To date in 2016, the Small Miracle Foundation has completed over 120 jobs in our community which would not have been possible without your help. We have provided more than 4,000 volunteer hours, and spent over $34,000.00 for materials.  Our completed jobs include installing grab bars, rotting floor repair, handrail installation and wheelchair ramp construction, to name a few.
 

You might ask yourself, “How can I help?”  We need volunteers who can do physical work, clean-up and go-fers at the job sites.  We also need experts in the trades to assist in assessing jobs and directing our crews on sites.  We can use assistance with certain administrative tasks, and with fundraising. Of course, monetary donations are always appreciated.

Without the involvement of community members, we would not have been able to accomplish the repairs to homes that local residents cannot afford or simply cannot do.  If you need additional information, please feel free to call us at 410-629-9829.

SMALL MIRACLES COMPLETES ANOTHER RAMP

 

The ramp was built on Cedar Street in Pocomoke for a disabled Marine veteran who was very appreciative of the effort. The work was completed over two days by Charles Jones, Ron Smith, Phil Lassiter, John Leonhart, Bill Long, Ralph Decker, Ron Wist, and Mark Wist. This is the fourth handicap ramp built by the Small Miracle Foundation since April.
The Foundation would like more volunteers, especially those who could work during the week. Contact the Foundation at
410-629-9829 or call the church office if interested.
