Working With Angels
Working with Angels Outreach
Working with Angels is Divine Renovation's primary outreach and is dedicated to assisting the people (within our own city) who have to make the difficult decision of heat or food, running water or pay the electricity bill. Many of the jobs performed are for the elderly and or disabled people (creating ramps, repairing small items, replacing light bulbs, cleaning, yard cutting, etc.
The operation is directed by Pastor Garza of Park Temple Baptist Church and is structured in the following manor: Pastor Garza manages the accounts, maintains the books, distributes donations and schedules repairs for those in need.
Initial Yearly Donation: At the beginning of each year Divine Renovation makes their initial pledge into the account. As the year progresses additional donations are made by Divine Renovation clients and others and include:
Additional Monitory Donations: (by Divine Renovation and its clients). Some can be earmarked for a specific family or project by the person making the donation.
Additional Charitable Donations: (by Divine Renovation and its clients) home furnishings (couches, beds, furniture, and clothing) and removed or excess materials from job sites (cabinets, stoves, microwaves, window AC, etc.)
Operation: When the job is simple, Pastor Garza will use one of his church members (usually in need of a job) to complete the project. The worker is paid by Pastor Garza from the Divine Renovation Working with Angels operations account.
When the job requires specialized labor and or inspections, Divine Renovation employees and vendors are dispatched to perform the work. Often without touching the DRWWA account.
