Mennonite volunteers work with the Victoria County Long-Term Recovery Group to provide plumbing repairs for Crossroads residents who have recovered from last month’s winter storm.
Volunteer teams had about 40 homes repaired by Thursday and will likely be in the area for a few more weeks, said Rick Villa, executive director of VCLTRG.
Interested parties can leave a voicemail at 361-894-6264.
Volunteers have traveled to Victoria from Oklahoma, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and New York to offer their help, Villa said.
“This is kind of a testament to the service and work ethic and love for your neighborly concept that the Mennonites have for this world we live in,” he said. “We are very happy.”
Mennonite Disaster Service, a nationwide network of volunteers, is paying for plumbing supplies, and Good360, a Virginia-based nonprofit, has also contributed, Villa said.
