Each year employees of Heritage Christian Services travel to Chimaltenango, Guatemala, to repair and distribute wheelchairs to those in need. Proceeds from "A Second Thought" help fund this mission. This is an ongoing volunteer opportunity and requires a weekly or semi-weekly schedule. Training will be done on site. Volunteers need to be able to lift a minimum of 10 lbs. and work in a fast pace environment. Come and join in on this wonderful volunteer opportunity.
