Hello RFMA members,
Yesterday (June 11th) we held our initial conference call with the volunteers and the RFMA Gives Steering Committee. There was a tremendous attendance and we are very appreciative of how generous our members are. On the call we discussed projects where members have stepped up and assumed responsibility and also updated everyone on site surveys by several vendors in preparation of staring their jobs. Immediately after the call, I received several messages from our members inquiring into taking ownership of some of the outstanding projects. I continue to be amazed. Work will begin as resources become available. The summer months promise to be busy with activity at The Journey Home.
We are in need of help on the following items:
- Company to complete the new dishmachine installation along with other kitchen remodel items. Plumbing and electrical will be required.
- Construct metal exterior stairs from the second floor to ground.
- Install new ceiling in dining room. Tiles will be provided.
- Supply/install replacement security/CCTV system.
- Company to complete restroom remodels. Floor tile provided.
- Possible drink station equipment.
- 10-20 square/rectangle tables for dining room.
- 2 Bunn style coffee makers.
- Shelving for kitchen.
- Smallwares for kitchen.
- Financial donations to help with above projects.
Please get involved. To inquire into one of the above projects, feel free to contact me or one of our co-project managers, Jim Roeger of Darden or Gordon Bruner of VMC Facilities. Contact info is as follows:
