April 7, 2020 update from ASP
In case you haven't heard this news from ASP... They have suspended their summer volunteer hosting until August 1, 2020 due to the Covid-19 situation. The mission trip that St. Andrews (and Lakeside campers who wanted to join in) had planned was for June 6 - 13.
What is ASP?
ASP was founded in 1968 by retired UMC Pastor “Tex” Evans with the intentions of serving the people of Appalachia by making homes warmer, safer and drier. Each summer over 14,000 youth and adults travel to some of the poorest regions of the U.S. located in Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina to work on existing homes and build relationships with the families who live there.
Who can go on the ASP mission trip?
Anyone who has completed 8th grade and is 14 years and older is eligible to participate in this construction-based mission trip. No skills are required.
