I have to write a follow up post to the one posted earlier today about the work day and the many things we have currently going on at Grace Landing. I have to write this follow up, because I am blown away by the willingness of local businesses to engage in making a difference in the lives of foster kids in central Florida. If you check out the Group Home Projects & Needs Lists, you will find several local businesses that are donating time, resources, and finances to make our Group Home a reality. I don’t want you to have to search through a list to locate who those community partners are, so I am going to spell it out for you:
- Kent Custom Homes – remodeling our master bedroom and bathroom
- Terry’s Electric – updating our light fixtures and ceiling fans in the home as well as exterior lighting
- Arnco Construction – repairing a bedroom door and frame, repairing closet doors and installing shelving and carpet in the bedrooms
- Kissimmee Carpet and Tile – partnering with Arnco to provide carpet for the bedrooms
- Jeff Wolfe Construction – removing a wall in between kitchen and breakfast room, repairing the pantry, repairing door frame from kitchen to garage and replacing doors (one from kitchen to garage and one from garage to outside)
- Statewide Cabinets – installing kitchen cabinets and counter tops.
- Crossfit Firebase – providing a work team for our March 28th work day
These local businesses are standing in the gap with Grace Landing to make a positive impact in the lives of young men in foster care in central Florida.
“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap…” Ezekiel 22:30
