“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.
