Statewide youth group shows support and goodwill to Monarch homes
Joshua Youth Camp, operated by Carolina Cross Connection (CCC), a collection of Freewill Baptist Churches in the area located in the western piedmont, sent several young campers to perform a variety of home repairs for the unemployed, the disabled, the elderly and single parents.
This year, residents of four of Monarch’s homes in Stanly County - Moss I and II, Troy Road, and East Main – were the lucky recipients of an outpouring of the group’s hard work.
“They were some of the most respectful youth and we appreciated all of the hard work that they did,” explained Natasha Black, operations manager in Region 3.
The campers performed yard work and planted flowers, painted shutters, handrails and doors and shared food and fellowship with the residents of each home. Residents and staff were very appreciative for the campers’ work and kindness.
