2017 Mission Trip
This summer, COYO Sr High will be travelling to the Jersey Shore to do repair on homes that were damaged during Hurricane Sandy. It has been a few years but there are still many homes that need repair as the area is still recovering. Students will work alongside Americorps members and learn a bit about building a house. Skills are not required. Students will learn how to hang drywall, mud drywall, paint, roof, install doors and windows, and other jobs that come up. Of course a real need is money, so there will be substantial efforts to raise money for St Bernard Project to be able to repair homes even after the group has left.
