Foundation Completes Two Major Projects!
$114,000 Wardrobe Project - our last 30 units on Terrace Court!
Our thanks to former board member and longtime supporter Don Mitchener who pledged to fund up to $52,500, or HALF of the remaining cost of the wardrobe project if we could find other donors to match it! After many years, we managed to raise $105,000 to build the last 30 units. Then, when building costs escalated during the pandemic, donors donated even more, to complete this project. ($3800 per unit x 30 units) We are looking forward to installing the last remaining units on Terrace Court this year. Construction was delayed due to our home being closed for several months.
28,000 Courtyard Project Refurbishment
We are also grateful to the Windsor Foundation which donated $28,000 to help refurbish our courtyard with new concrete patio surface which is safer for wheelchairs and new sod and trees. Notice the new sail cloths this summer! Beautiful!
