    25-Day Blitz Build

    We got a lot of support from our contractor friends to complete our 25 day Blitz build.  On Thursday of the last week, Wm. Meyer arrived an blew in insulation to the crawl of our home on Elma.  Without their suppot we could not have dedicated the home, see our Home Ownner section to the left, on our Anniversary.

    And we are grateful to Sebert Landscaping for donating landscaping and volunteer labor to complete the all of the yardwork. The curb appeal transformation in one day was simply beautiful.

    The same day, we had a new corporate volunteer team from Salesforce on site. We are always looking for new corporate build day sponsors like Salesforce to join in partnering with our organization! If you are interested in receiving more information on how to get your work team involved, please contact Bill Klaves, Associate Director, at, or call 847-836-1432.
