EDMOND — Almost 150 church and community members came together to refurbish Central Middle School recently.

In the second annual “Serve Day,” First Presbyterian Church of Edmond helped refurbish landscape and brickwork in the courtyard, repair and “dress up” fencing and cover the school in prayer weeks before. Church members also sanitized the school — cleaning every locker, desk, shelf and table in every room, from the cafeteria to the classrooms to the teachers’ lounge.

The church provides yearlong support to the school, which is across the street from the church, 1001 S Rankin. Periodic lunches for teacher staff and testing monitors are just a few of those services.

Also, church members provided 357 pounds of personal hygienic items to Route 66 Food and Resource Center in Edmond, from soap to toothbrushes.
