As part of their One Day service program, Highridge Church volunteers cleaned, raked, repaired fencing, trimmed trees, and painted the Benbrook Animal Shelter on Saturday, May 4. Coordinating with City staff, the group transformed the shelter in a one-day project that promises to brighten the shelter for years to come.
Lead by Outreach Pastor Levi Gafford, the large group of volunteers worked in shifts throughout the day. Pastor Gafford tapped into the ample talents of church members, including utilizing a professional tree trimming team, along with several talented artists who designed and painted a large mural on the exterior of the shelter; adding color and cheer to the building.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the organization of the group, and of course, with the final result.” says Benbrook Police Lieutenant David Martin, “We want to thank all the amazing volunteers for dedicating their Saturday to this project.”
