Oasis Brings Local Church Together With Home Builder’s Association

May 01, 2010

churchOasis of Hope is connecting needs with resources:  When we learned that Temple of Faith church at 1083 Tully needed some construction work done, we introduced them to the Home Builder’s Association (MAHBA) who organized numerous man-hours to install toilets, urinals, sinks, faucets and to repair burst pipes, nearly completing construction on this new facility.  Many thanks to everyone involved, MAHBA, and Robert Nunnally of Arlington Plumbing for the material and labor they donated.  If you would like more information or would like to help with this worthwhile project, please contact James Reid at 372-8500
