“The students worked at the Vernonia Pioneer Museum where they  did landscaping work, planted trees at the new Vernonia Schools campus, cleaned bricks from the old high school that will be used to build pathways in the Community Garden, painted at the American Legion Hall, cleaned up some City owned properties and did yard work for several senior citizens.”

“Basically anyone who wants to come out and serve god is more than welcome,”says Robbie Frederiksen who is a Regional Coordinator for the Portland office for Sierra Service Projects. “We’ve had people from the Mormon faith, the Catholic faith-anybody who wants to come out and work we are more than happy to have their hands. We actually have people here who don’t have a faith at all but want to be of service.” Frederiksen has been working with locals to organize the logistics for the work project.
