Old Duenweg Elementary School gets make over with Project Partnership
140 Joplin James River Church volunteers
DUENWEG, Mo. — The old Duenweg Elementary school gets a makeover before it becomes home to Beacon school students. A Beacon school is a program for kids who need extra attention or are on the Autism spectrum.
James River Church held its first project partnership in the Joplin area.
Duenweg is one of five schools that was renovated between Springfield and Joplin by 1,200 volunteers.
140 volunteers from the Joplin James river church spent the day painting the entire inside of the Duenweg Elementary building, deep cleaning it and doing landscaping projects.
“We do it all to show the love of Christ in the community, and to the school system, but we just want to be a blessing to the school, we believe in what they’re doing, and we want to come alongside and encourage them, let the teachers know and the students know that hey people care, and we want to come alongside, so they’ll have an even better school year” said Pastor Justin Jahanshir.
James River Church moved to the Joplin area earlier this year.
It is the 21st year for Project Partnership.
