West Point, GA – Building homes for two families in the Greater Valley area was the order of the day recently as Batson-Cook Construction and two other organizations teamed with Point University for its “Impact Day: Build the Walls” project.
Volunteers from Batson-Cook, Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project, CrossRoads Missions and Point University gathered on a Friday to cut wood, assemble walls and complete frames for the two houses. Volunteers manned 30 different stations to assemble portions of the frames with materials provided by Batson-Cook. The frames will be erected on the home sites at a later date.
“We are extremely excited to be working with Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project, CrossRoads Missions and Point University to address the need for affordable housing in the Valley area,” said Paul Meadows, a Batson-Cook project executive and life-long resident of the area. “Batson-Cook is celebrating its 100th year and we take pride in the fact that we are able to give back to the communities that we have called home for a century.”
Point University began “Impact Day” in 2008. Since that time students, faculty and staff have logged thousands of volunteer hours on a variety of community service projects in the Valley area. CFCP, a nonprofit organization, was formed in 2007 to build affordable housing and improve neighborhoods in the Great Valley area. Since that time, it has built more than 34 homes. CrossRoads Missions combines the principles of worship, service and discipleship to bring churches and individuals together for service and ministry opportunities.
