Thank you for an amazing 2016

You get what 516 Project is all about. It’s not the hammers and nails. It’s not the projects or materials. It’s the love and hope offered by Jesus Christ to families in need.

2016 has been an extraordinary year for our ministry. As a 100% volunteer organization we’ve worked on the homes of nearly 20 families, provided over 1000 hours of volunteer labor and given HOPE that can’t be found apart from Jesus. THANK YOU for being a part of our mission.

This is an excerpt from an email we received last week:
” I just wanted to thank you & the 516 Project for continuing to think of me when scheduling your work days. The gentlemen who came to my home yesterday to replace the surrounding in my tub did a fabulous job. I am extremely grateful for all that has been done to my home so far. Your willingness to help others is extremely heart touching. I can’t begin to say how much this has meant to me & Jax. We are truly blessed to have have you & your volunteers working in our lives.”

Ms. R is a grandmother raising her 5 year old grandson. He was born to a drug addicted mother and has endured more struggles in his 5 years than many of us will face in a lifetime. Her home had fallen into disrepair because she simply couldn’t do the work and didn’t have the money to pay a contractor. When she originally reached out to us she had lost hope because she didn’t know where to turn. Seeing the smile on her face and the tears in her eyes when we showed up was both awesome and heartbreaking. THIS is 516 Project! THIS is the love of Jesus being poured out on our community.

I know there are many wonderful organizations asking for your support as we near the end of 2016. I humbly ask that you support 516 Project with your tax deductible gift. Any amount you can offer helps us continue our mission of sharing Jesus’ love.

November 2016 Update

dsc06544-2

November was an AMAZING month. God’s blessing have been so much more than we could’ve imagined. At the beginning of the month we had one of our big workdays. 30 volunteers came out as we served 6 families and provided over 300 hours of volunteer labor. That’s over $7,500 worth of labor donated! Our big project for the day was a complete roof replacement for a family in Spotsylvania.

 

Many of you have been following our work at Ms. J’s house the past few months. This project really took on a like of its own. As happens when conditions are so deteriorated, the more we did the more issues we discovered.  All said and done we had to replace floor joists, wall framing, plumbing, water heater, all bathroom fixtures, drywall, flooring etc. We are so excited to announce that our work is completed and the bathroom is fully useable. The only work needed is a little trim work and painting that the family is taking care of. Such a blessing to help this family and provide them a wonderful bathroom to use.
