    This event helps pay for the Senior High and Junior High mission trips in the Summer. Senior High goes out of town with Sierra Service Project and Junior High works locally for different community groups.

    All workers must be over 16 years of age. All hours not donated to a specific youth will help pay for adult chaperones to attend mission trips.

    These are long days and we thank you in advance for considering helping us. You don’t have to worry about anything but showing up. We will have training sessions before the event and meals are provided during the time you are working.
