First Baptist Church in Duncanville provided hot meals and showers for the 175 volunteers with Bounce, the student disaster recovery program of the Baptist General Convention of Texas.

The student volunteers completed construction and rehabilitation projects for homeowners who had no means of doing them themselves.

Bounce worked in partnership with Dallas–People Helping People and Dallas Baptist Association to coordinate project assignments and provide construction materials.

“We are excited to be mobilizing students for our third year this summer for community rehabilitation and disaster recovery,” said David Scott, Bounce director.

“People may at times feel hopeless because of their living conditions. It’s my hope that our participants might be able to help restore hope in the lives of the people they serve, as well as improve their home situation.”
