Dear Friends and Supporters,
We hope all is well with you in this season of Spring 2019! With Spring full upon us here at the Fellowship Community as well comes the need for capital renewal projects and we are sending you this special Spring Appeal letter with the hope that you can join us right now in supporting these Capital needs.
The list is long and includes:
- The need for creating a dual conference room and wheelchair accessible evacuation space away from Hill Top House ( in the Foundation office building) in case of fire or other emergency.
- We have a number of apartments in desperate need of renovation for members and new coworkers. We are happy to report that our waiting list of new members continues to grow and after a few years of being challenged to find capable coworkers we are now welcoming some wonderful new coworker families to our community!
- We have a serious need for repaving of many of our roads for better wheelchair and access routes in addition to some serious roof repairs.
- And last but not least we need to renovate the medical office spaces with a handicapped bathroom and this has lead to a rethinking of the therapeutic spaces to make them more conducive to the wonderful work that happens there. These spaces serve a need that goes way beyond our own community and supports an ever wider group of patients.
All the above comes to an estimate of just over $400,000 and we know the longer we wait the more expensive these repairs will be! We are deeply grateful that we have received some challenge grants from long time supporters that get us close to half the above amount!
We therefore are appealing to you our dear friends and wider afield long time supporters, and hopefully new supporters alike, to help us meet this challenge for what we are calling our Spring Renewal Appeal.
Please consider joining me in making a donation today and on behalf of the the whole community we thank you in advance for your generous support!
