Seminole County Middle High School FBLA students had the privilege of cleaning and preparing the Friendship United Methodist Church’s Wurst House for a new work crew coming into the community to help with the Blue Tarp Project. 

Many homes in the community still have damaged roofs from Hurricane Michael’s devastation and water has seeped into many walls, creating a health hazard. Most of these residents have no other place to go. They cannot afford to move and there are no properties available for them to move to. The Blue Tarp Project is committed to removing every blue tarp in our community! 

The FBLA students were thrilled to help provide this work crew with a nice clean place to stay. They stripped and made up beds, placed linens to be picked up by another team, sprayed all beds with Lysol before putting on new linens, cleaned out showers, vacuumed upstairs, mopped floors and made up beds in basement, and replaced all paper products. 

A FBLA spokesperson commented, “Thank you, FUMC, for your continued relief efforts; we will be back very soon to help with anything. And thank you so much to Jo’s Family Restaurant for helping feed us lunch today!! It was delicious. #givingback.”
