Help... Cemetery restoration/clean-up
Hello Afrigeneas Family,
I amconsidering to voluntarily taken onaproject that is over due. I want to start a restoration project at one of the cemetries where some of my family members are buried.
The past groundkeepers have pasted on and the last person did not follow through onthe upkeep.
Does anyone know of any grant programs or available help for funds in Texas? I have contacted some of the family members of other people buried there for help but am not getting any response due to the poor job of the past groundskeeper.
Some ideas I have are letter writing campaign to the other families, bake sale, contacting county commisioners for help.
All ideas and avenues are welcomed. I know something has to be donesoon.
Keep the search going, you will be pleasantly surprised with your findings.
