Maggie Nance, a member of M.L. Harris United Methodist Church, led a team of six to clean the house and cook casseroles.
“This is a home away from home,” said Nance, the secretary of the United Methodist Women (UMW) for the Columbus District. The house, built in 1994, is for parents and other relatives of persons hospitalized for extended periods.
