Dr. Susan Rodeffer has been a volunteer with World Changers for several years and she has managed to have the organization come to Nassau County!
Susan updated the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise at its weekly meeting about the organization, which sends teams of youth volunteers from churches all over the country to different locations each summer to help with several projects. World Changers will be here with 225 students the week of July 13th – July 18th to take on approximately 20 of these projects.
World Changers, Barnabas, and the Council on Aging collaborate to determine the need and urgency in picking the projects. The focus will be on substandard housing issues mainly affecting seniors.
Funding for World Changers comes from private donations and the student participants pay their own way for the week of work.
This year will be the first time World Changers has come into Nassau County.
For information on how you can assist in this event, contact Wanda Lanier at Barnabas, Janice Ancrum at the Council on Aging, or Dr. Susan Rodeffer at her orthodontics office on 14th Street.
