Project W.A.R.M. (Weatherization and Repair Ministry) recently finished its 26th year of helping less fortunate citizens in the county repair their homes to better cope with winter weather. The ministry began in 1989 in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Hugo at the urging of the Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church youth. However, because of the excitement it generated, W.A.R.M. continued as a winter ministry of LSUMC and has grown into a community wide effort, say W.A.R.M. organizers.
