Car wash/bottle drive benefit for youth service trip

Come on down to Hinesburg Fire Station Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. to get your car washed. Bring your bottles too! Hinesburg teens will be on hand to clean your car. All proceeds benefit the Hinesburg Youth Project’s service trip to H.O.M.E., Inc, in Orland, Maine in June. 

The Hinesburg Youth Project was founded in 2016 at the United Church of Hinesburg to connect youth with transformative experiences in education, service and advocacy. These annual service trips form character and a lasting commitment to the common good. On past trips, participants have explored food insecurity in New York City, considered a variety of social justice issues in the Boston area and assisted with hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico.

This year, 17 students will work with H.O.M.E. Inc. in programs designed to respond to the needs of the low income population in rural Maine. H.O.M.E. Inc. provides shelters for the homeless, affordable daycare, organic  gardens, a craft co-op for home-based industries such as weaving, stained glass, pottery, sewing and creative arts, a food pantry and soup kitchen, and programs to support a house construction and repair effort. More information is available a homemmausa.org.
