Glo Windows Delivered, Thank You Tivnu!

The Glo doors were delivered to Two Blocks North! Thank you to Gary and Pam, and Erik and his crew at Tivnu for volunteering their morning to move, sort, and clean the garage and the house two blocks south. http://tivnu.org/ And to Glo Windows and Doors for donating these amazing blue doors! The Tivnu and Birdsmouth crews were able to unload the doors and get them safely in the garage, where they will be stored for only a short while. Phase 2 exterior work is in the final planning stages and getting close to construction! The Glo Doors will be in place soon. Stay tuned, and thank you again to all that have donated to Brian and Hanne! Today is a bright day…

Our First Paint Party!

Thank you to all the friends and family that came out this weekend to help us patch, tape, caulk, and prime the walls ready for paint this weekend! The gift of labor goes a long way!

And as always, we are accepting more donations for our campaign here. We are so humbled that we are 28% funded, and that doesn’t include the more than $25,000 for in-kind donations!
