It was the brainchild of Sutherland Presbyterian Minister Karen Woo. Why send mission teams "out" to remote locations when there is work to be done in our own home town? She partnered with the other churches in town and created Mission Sutherland.
Village of Sutherland Board of Trustees for projects, then the Village Board contacted the owner, who is unable to complete repairs himself. He gave permission and the volunteers went to work.
Kudos to this forward-thinking woman for spearheading this project, and to the dedicated volunteers for rolling up their sleeves and doing the work.
