Fundraiser Kick-off

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

Monday, 5-16-16, was the official kickoff for our fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by June 1, 2016 so we can purchase and outfit a response trailer. During our fund drive on Monday YOU donated $2098.50! I am just blown away by the support of everyone who has stepped up to help. It far exceeded what I thought we’d raise on the first day.

This trailer will allow our volunteers to deploy quickly in event of a natural disaster or other emergency to provide help to affected families. The objective is to have the tools and materials necessary to secure their home and be able to make an assessment of needs to return and help complete repairs.

If you would like information on sponsoring this trailer please contact James Roberson at 516projectfxbg (at) gmail.com for details. Your business name/logo would look great!
