Work Is Under Way!!

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Friday, February 17, 2017

Hello RFMA members,

Well, it's been a bit frustrating getting projects going at The Daily Bread but it's finally happening. The new roof is completed and looks great thanks to Royalty Roofing & Duro-Last. The parking lot repairs have been completed and now it's safe to drive inside the Daily Bread, thanks to Mad Jack's Asphalt and Concrete. And the a/c installations have begun thanks to Trane, Johnson Controls, York, and Performance Air. The interior work should be starting soon as we are in the final approval process with the City of Orlando Building Dept. for the permit. Projects should be well underway during our conference. We are still needing the enlistment of major electrical and plumbing support. Feel free to reach out to me to discuss. Stay tuned for future progress as the fun has started!!

RFMA Gives Update

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Hello RFMA members,

Quick update on our project at the Daily Bread in Orlando. The main set of drawings have been completed and submitted to the city of Orlando for permitting. With a little support from Robert Stuart from the Daily Bread and Ron Wilhite, CRFP from Regions Facility Services, we are hoping to expedite the permitting process. Hopefully we will be able to get started in early January. Other items currently being permitted are the parking lot, roofing, and a/c installations. These projects should be well under way by the middle of January.

We have been fortunate to have several pieces of cooking equipment donated but are still in need of a couple electric tilt skillets. We also are needing a Florida registered electrician and plumber to complete several items in the facility. If interested, feel free to contact either myself at or one of our Project Managers at: ron.wilhite@rfsrenovates (Ron Wilhite), (Mark Gomolla) or (Kelly Otto).

Have a wonderful and safe Holiday Season!!

Stay tuned for more updates as the fun is just beginning.

Thanks for all who have donated!!

RFMA Gives Back: 75F Experience

Posted By Kristen E. Johnson, 75F, Friday, October 14, 2016
It was a bright, sunny morning when we headed out to find The Daily Bread in downtown Orlando, Florida, where we would volunteer to help refresh a center that feeds the homeless and less fortunate. We were greeted by a large group of smiling faces alongside coffee and pastries. Thank you for the treats, Starbucks! We were given an emotional welcome speech from The Daily Bread community leaders. It was clear in both demeanor and words how overwhelmed the team was to see 160 eager faces, anxious to make improvements to the grounds and facilities. We quickly broke into groups that were in charge of landscaping, cleaning, organizing a clothes pantry, remodeling restrooms and painting. Each team was led by a designated task force leader who kept us energized and focused, while encouraging us to stay hydrated. The most grueling job was likely landscaping, as temps landed at over 90°F, with a heat index that was over 103°F! Around our lunch hour we took a much needed break to rehydrate and reenergize with a delicious meal. A special thanks to Olive Garden and KFC for donating the food. The incredible RFMA team provided a US map and everyone was encouraged to put on pin on their home. At the time we placed our orange pins on the Minneapolis area, we represented the most northern point on the map! It was truly rewarding to see so many individuals come together in pursuit of one common goal! With 160 hardworking people working as a team, we were reminded of what volunteering is all about. Thank you RFMA Gives for orchestrating such an impactful event. We loved being a part of it and we are proud of you for working to make a difference!
