Non-profit organization brings new equipment to Port Aransas

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A group of about 80 women spent the past two days in Port Aransas.

Leeann Moore, the president of Sister-Corps, said they serve this community and celebrate as well.

“We started here five years ago in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey so we came back to celebrate our fifth anniversary,” said Leeann Moore.

Alongside Moore is Sheri Johnson, the director of Sister-Corps. But they are not the only two members of this organization.

“We are kind of shaking up some age and gender stereotypes. We do a lot of work,” Moore said.

Hard-working women who don’t hesitate to get their hands dirty.

“We had the service part, which consisted of making benches for the city, painting the Farley boats. We did a beach cleanup and a food drive,” Johnson explained.

During their visit, Sister-Corps wanted to work on projects to beautify the city but also to acquire some skills that they can use in the future.

Brenda Williams traveled from Tennessee to teach other members basic building.

“As Sister Corps moves into lightweight construction, we need to train more women to be able to do this,” Williams said.

Sister-Corps donated three benches which will be placed somewhere in the city.

Now they are preparing to help in a disaster.
