TWIG (Together We Impact Greenwood) is back

A TWIG group poses for a photo.

On July 12-17, 400 junior and senior high youth will come to Greenwood to help those in need with free home repair. They will be housed in Greenwood High School and go out each day to assist those in need. They will return each day to fun and spiritually enriching activities.

Would you like your youth to be involved? Sign up through

Would you like assistance with your home? We can help with such things as wheelchair ramps, porches, steps, painting, weatherization, mobile home skirting, etc.. We will be unable to do roofing.

Go to for an application. You must own your home, be at most 30 minutes from Greenwood High School. Applications should be mailed to the address on the application no later than Dec 31. A TWIG representative will contact you and arrange to assess your home’s needs after your application is received.

TWIG is sponsored by First Presbyterian Church Greenwood and Group Workcamps with the wonderful help of District 50, Sneads Building Supply and the Index-Journal.
