Backyard Mission Trip Helps More Than 200 People

4/28/14 – 4:52 A.M.

The annual Backyard Mission Trip in Findlay and Hancock County was a success. More than 1,300 community volunteers fanned out over the area to take on 214 projects this year. The volunteers helped tackle household projects for people in need. Members of 29 churches got involved, while other community organizations also pitched in.

The projects included the construction of a new wheelchair ramp at one home. University of Findlay football players helped move a shed for another homeowner. Many of the projects included cleaning up debris in yards.
