This special event coordinates the efforts of the faith community, encouraging all different faiths, cultures, and backgrounds to work together on projects that benefit deserving agencies in our community.
Men, women, boys and girls will work at various organizations in the Huntsville/Madison County area on the Day of Service and Unity (DSU) sprucing up, painting, pulling weeds, cutting grass and whatever the participating organizations are in need of. Projects vary in terms of skills and exertion; however there will be something for everyone to do regardless of age.
