Volunteer Experience – Mosaic United Methodist Church – OKC – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Volunteer Experience – Mosaic United Methodist Church – OKC – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Members from Mosaic United Methodist Church – OKC, Perry and Elizabeth Kliewer, MaryAnn Carns, David and Susan Humphrey, Jeni Clewell, Alan Logan, Paul W. Calkin, Lissa Wright, Nancy Scott, William F. and Rose Todd spent five days volunteering at La Posada Providencia to create a walking trail on the 10-acre shelter property.  The walking trail will benefit both clients and staff by promoting and providing an outlet for a healthy and active lifestyle.  The volunteer group not only laid the walking trail, but they also assisted us with other important maintenance needs around the facility. Chief among these was helping install a new air conditioner for La Posada’s ESL and life-skills classroom.
Upon reflecting on their five-day experience at La Posada, members of the Mosaic Methodist Church group expressed a desire to share their different experiences with the hope of raising awareness for La Posada.  When describing the experience, they had many comments:
