The Reverend Richard Fife has shared this with us, and we encourage you to find a way to be involved in this growing project!
Building on Bishop Curry's visit and the annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, members of a multiracial community group born out of the Becoming Beloved Community initiative in Roanoke and the Gainsboro Southwest Neighborhood Organization invite you to participate in a community project to restore dilapidated and abandoned homes in the history-rich Gainsboro neighborhood. The Gainsboro Stabilizing Housing and Restoration Project (GSHARP) aims to restore the beauty and historic character of the neighborhood, one home at a time. GSHARP welcomes volunteers and tax deductible contributions of funds and materials for the project. To get involved, please contact Sharron Jeffries at 540.793.1940 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Richard Fife at 540.797.8172 or email@example.com for more information.
This month, the Roanoke Co+op is highlighting the GSHARP program as part of their “Chip” fundraising at the front door.
