Great Days of Service in Irving

Home

GDS 2021


Thanks so much for your interest in Great Days of Service. Because of the limitations imposed by COVID-19, the way in which we can serve our neighbors in Irving will be significantly different. First, there will be no large group celebrations such as the opening prayer breakfast and closing celebration. Also, a small group of volunteers has been diligently working to complete whatever repairs they could on the properties submitted by owners in 2019 and 2020. We currently have an inventory of 25 homes that need our attention. During some Saturdays in April and May, volunteers will continue to complete whatever repairs are needed on the exterior of these properties. If you would like to volunteer, we welcome your help.

Please contact Glen Rogers at (972) 510-5084 or gdsirving@yahoo.com.
