On Thursday, July 13, 2023, a team of seven volunteers set out from Port Edwards UMC on a short-term service trip to Harbor House in Superior, WI. We spent our first day cleaning two empty apartments at the Tabitha Apartments supportive housing. This included wiping down surfaces, vacuuming floors, and prepping one of them to be painted. By the end of the second day, both were clean, and one had a fresh coat of gray paint. It wouldn’t be long before they were ready to welcome two new families!
In addition to turning over two apartments, we were able to spend some time meeting other residents and folks from the neighborhood. We learned about the ministries of Harbor House and got to tour their other facilities at the emergency shelter and transitional living center. And we even got to enjoy a few of the sights around Duluth-Superior.
It was such a blessing being able to work alongside Krystal and her team, and we are looking forward to continuing to support their ministry in the future. By Rev. Caleb McGregor
