Widows Harvest holds Weekend of Service

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Martin Luther King, Junior Day may not be until Monday, but some folks are already giving back this holiday weekend.

Volunteers from Chattanooga and a church in Birmingham are teaming up with Widows Harvest to help local widows with work on their homes.

Some folks were installing a roof; other groups are doing yard work and painting at separate sites.

These volunteers say they’re happy to serve.

“It means a lot. I’m a believer by faith, and I believe that what we’re doing is close to God’s heart, and it really touches her,” says Doug Daugherty with Widows Harvest Ministries.

“If you can help, you just help others. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, what you are, you just help,” adds Paula Smalley who is visiting from Birmingham, Alabama.

Volunteers say work will continue on this home for another couple of weeks.

They’ll be out here again on Monday.
