Compassion In Action Stories, Katy ServeFest

Thank You Katy ServeFest 2012 Volunteers


Compassion Katy wants to thank all of our incredible volunteers who served with us at Katy ServeFest 2012!

For the first time in Katy ServeFest history, we were forced to cancel a work weekend for outdoor projects on February 18 because of weather conditions. However, on February 25, the volunteers were able to complete almost every planned project at each of the 7 different project locations. At the Katy Family YMCA’s Camp Cinco, we worked to improve the day camp facility by clearing and mulching new trails, building three new play structures, painting and staining various areas, repairing several buildings and pouring over 7 cubic yards of concrete. Volunteers worked at 2 different Katy Christian Ministries locations, building new dressing rooms at the Mason Rd Superstore and painting at their administration building. We were also able to bless several families in our community by assisting with much needed home repairs like repairing walls, painting, roofing, plumbing and electrical work.

Special thanks goes out to our 20 church partners and the many volunteer Katy ServeFest Leaders who stepped up and made such a huge difference to our community! Without the help of our leaders and church partners, Katy ServeFest would not happen. Compassion Katy would also like to thank Chick-fil-a of Katy and Treehouse Mexican Baja Grill for their generous donations of food for the volunteers. Thank you!
