FORT MYERS, Fl. - For the second year in a row, hundreds of volunteers from numerous Fort Myers churches gave back in a big way. It's all part of 'Operation Inasmuch,' a community service effort at sites all around the city.
Making blankets for foster children, providing clothes for the homeless and sprucing up houses around town. More than 3-hundred volunteers from six different Fort Myers churches had a clear mission Saturday.
"Putting our beliefs into action," says Karen Ulack.
Showing those who need a little help a little love with 'Operation Inasmuch.'
"It comes from Matthew 25 where Jesus is talking about the sheep and the goats. And it says in as much as you have done unto the least of these, you've done it unto me," says Pastor John Daugherty.
The community service blitz completed 41 projects around the city including adding a fresh coat of paint to Geneva Rodriguez's home.
"Thank God for people that will help because you know I needed it and I said God sent them at the right time for me to get it done," she says.
"It's all a mosaic of tiny moments which are huge for the individual which may not be much to you but for them it's pricelessm" says volunteer, John Jones.
For all these volunteers, they hope their actions spread a message of hope.
"I'm going to walk away with a wonderful feeling, tired muscles but a joyous heart," Ulack adds.
Vounteers also helped at the Harry Chapin Food Bank. They also cleaned up several parks in the city and paid for people who stopped by various laundromats.
