We have a good grasp on the downstairs, but the upstairs storage and meeting rooms haven't been started. Can you paint a room or two? Can you volunteer time or pay for the expense of paint?
The windows in the building are old and need to be replaced. Two of them are cracked. Can you volunteer the time to replace the two cracked glass panes or pay to replace the whole bay window in that room - or donate the windows for the whole building?!
The carpet in the upstairs is worn and stained. Can you donate the materials needed to put a waterproof laminate flooring throughout the upstairs? Can you donate time to install it?
We have our downstairs kitchen finished! The upstairs kitchen needs some work. This can be for staff and volunteers to make a pot of chili or prepare food items to serve downstairs.
There will be a food pantry area. It needs shelves built and the room to become functional for storage. Can you donate the lumber or the time to build these shelves?
We need a TV wall mounted in the seating area
The bathrooms are a big deal - we need the whole package for both a men's room and a women's bathroom. Can you donate money towards ADA approved toilets, sinks, wheelchair accessible showers, vents, mirrors, lighting, and all the work it'll take to create these important spaces?
We have the washer and dryer donated! Can you work on that area to create a functional space with hookups and a laundry room? A door needs to be added into that laundry area, so that we can access the storage room. This is a project that would take a handyman!
If we could get an elevator lift installed, the upstairs would be a usable part of this ministry. If you're able to donate or install a lift - we could use one!
These drop ceilings have seen better days and many tiles need to be replaced. Can you volunteer to buy the extra tiles or the time to switch them out? And some new florescent light covers too?
Your donation of any amount will help us open! It's not only a day shelter for the homeless, but also a place for those in need to find support to take the next step forward.
