Adopt-A-Block: Welcome Back, Neighbor!

A record number of friends from Prestonwood Singles Ministry returned to Bonton for Adopt-A-Block service day on Saturday, July 20. Bonton residents welcomed sixty Prestonwood “neighbors” into their homes, front porches and backyards on Dorris Street. Lawns were mowed, weeds were pulled, houses were painted, and yards were cleared of debris as friendships were being formed and renewed.
