FORT MYERS, Fl. - More than 900 volunteers hit the streets of Fort Myers Sunday for 'Operation Inasmuch.'
It's a community effort by nine different churches. Organizers came up with several service projects around the community from painting houses, building wheelchair ramps to even paying for laundry services for people going to area laundromats.
Rosa Santiago joined ten other volunteers at Ms. Margaret Robinson's home. They spruced up her lawn and repainted her home.
"It's just amazing, it shows that God is an awesome God and we're doing things for His glory,"she says.
Pastor Jeffrey Deyoe with Covenant Presbyterian says everyone can help in some way.
"I'm not the most talented buy but I can use a paintbrush... we come together when it really counts. when it comes to heling out our neighbor."
This was the first 'Operation Inasmuch' and organizers say they hope to make it an annual event.
