Salineville kids can help others, and themselves
SALINEVILLE — M.J. Ludwig of the Everyone’s Welcome Church offered some assistance to the community and elderly at a recent Salineville council meeting.
Ludwig said she and her husband, Ted Ludwig, like to help youth in grades 7-12 get to a summer camp through their Young Life program. The camp is not cheap, but the Ludwigs like to give the children a chance to learn how to earn the money they need. One of the ways is by doing projects through the church.
However, M.J. Ludwig said they would like to find more projects to help kids raise the money this year. She asked the council if they could help her come up with some ideas.
“You’ve got a pool of money and you just need somebody to tell you how to earn it,” Mayor Linda Adams said.
Ludwig said even if there was someone elderly in town who needed a specific project done that was something teens could do, the Ludwigs and the church will help provide the supplies needed. There are even adults able to help supervise the youth as they work, earning about $10 per hour toward going to camp for the help they provide.
Council discussed some possible uses for the workforce Ludwig was offering and plan to come up with some ideas. The projects will be done in early June.
In other matters:
— Council accepted the resignation of police officer Frank Arroyo, who found a full-time job elsewhere.
— The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 20 instead of Feb. 19 due to the day being President’s Day.
