Area residents will take to the streets of Bowie this weekend for the start of a weeklong cleanup and restoration effort.
Members of Bowie StreetReach — a Christian evangelical project administered by the Turn on the Light Bowie nonprofit — will camp out at Mount Oak Fellowship’s church at 14110 Mount Oak Road in Bowie starting on Sunday and ending on July 14.
For the next week, about 40 volunteers will participate in a Bowie StreetReach’s fifth mission trip that will have them providing free repairs and cleanup efforts to residents living in the P-section of Bowie with work occuring in the area around Pointer Ridge Drive , said Gale TeSelle, director of Turn on the Light.
The outreach effort costs more than $6,000 and was paid for with money from Turn on the Light Bowie, corporate donations and registration fees by volunteers, TeSelle said.
Those needing help or interested in volunteering can contact organizers at 301-249-2230. The cost to volunteer in the mission trip is $120 per person, which pays for meals and bus travel. Pointer Ridge Drive.
