At a time in our world when nothing is certain and everything seems disconnected, we created The Open Chair Project to begin creating new bonds within our community. The aim of this project is to bring a little relief and new connections to those in need. On November 13, 2021, The Open Chair Project and the First United Methodist Church of Burnet volunteers would like to bless a few Burnet families with assistance on chores and minor home repairs. Our volunteers will be assisting with chores such as yard work, minor home repairs that do not requires a licensed professional, and light cleaning. The number of families we are able to bless this year will depend on the availability of volunteers and materials. If you would like to apply please fill out the attached application and drop it by The First United Methodist Church of Burnet at 301 E. Graves St. between the hours of 9AM to 3PM, Monday through Friday. You can also apply online at by clicking The Community Outreach Link under the Connect tab. If you would like to volunteer or donate to the project please contact Veronica Pujol at 512-756-2229.
