THANK YOU “Serve the City” Volunteers!!

On Thursday, July 14th and Friday, July 15th volunteers from Southside Baptist Church and Open Door Church in Suffolk volunteered their time and skills to assist several schools around the city with things like landscaping, painting, cleaning, etc. They chose Nansemond Parkway Elementary as one of their schools. It was such a blessing as they worked hard in the “hot” sun to show their love and appreciation for the city of Suffolk. We are looking forward to partnering with them as they wish to return next summer. THANK YOU “Serve the City”!!!
