While our day may have started out with uncertainty as to how we could help, it ended with more to do than we had time to do it in! The Danielle Inn property is beautiful with sprawling acres and a striking white house with wraparound porch overlooking a large pond.
The morning began with a tour of the home by House Mother Connie. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with so many volunteers. We had an amazing 27 people come out and help on Saturday! Someone mentioned that it was “Deep Cleaning Day” and usually this means the mothers (expectant and new mothers) were deep cleaning the huge house. Not this time! As soon as the tour was over we were all finding tasks and digging in. We did everything from moving furniture, cleaning baseboards, scrubbing down the kitchen, to making small repairs and working on landscaping. Two hours wasn’t enough time, but we surely gave them a good start.
All in all it was a great turnout, and a great day with more than enough work! We might even make Danielle Inn our annual “Spring Cleaning” Doing Good Day. Thank you to the many volunteers who come out, we are blessed!
