A brief History of WARM
Weatherization And Repair Ministry (WARM) is a project very near and dear to the heart of Lyttleton Street UMC. In response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, we launched a project to help repair the damage caused by the storm. The project was spurred on by the Youth of Lyttleton Street UMC at the time. In 2001, we partnered with three local United Methodist churches to bolster our efforts across Kershaw County. The partnership was a success as 15 homes were repaired in just two days. Additional churches have since joined the effort, and WARM continues to be a success as it also continues to grow.
