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.

Thank you for the prayers and support!
In HIS Service,
James Roberson, President
516 Project, Inc. 501c3
