All I can say is “WOW”…the team working on the Annie Ross project this week really did a fabulous job. I can’t get over the dedication to the process the core team has shown. There is still opportunities for additional volunteers, of course, and we will continue to need furniture and household supplies.
What we all marveled at upon completion of this project was how we were to able take a variety of other peoples cast offs and turn them into a pretty wonderful, aesthetically pleasing home for a family to move into. Each of the families that move into a rental unit at the Anne Ross campus, KEEP everything that they have in their home when they move in. This enables them to move forward without starting over each time. Looking around at the items in the home, this mom and her kids have lots of great stuff for now and the future.
We’re excited to share our success with you all. Please take a moment to look at the finished results and read the comments from our contact at Annie Ross:
“They absolutely loved the house, and were so excited! I wish you could have seen it – the kids didn’t want to leave their bedrooms once they saw them, and the mom kept asking how you guys knew all of their favorite things! Apparently she loves light green and purple, and was so excited about the living room and kitchen. The little boy is in a map phase right now, so he was really excited to have one on his wall, and the little girl just walked around smiling for a good half hour after picking out her bed.
They asked me to thank you profusely, and are so excited to have a new home that is so beautiful!”
