Our PLACE Update
The board members and volunteers are working daily to bring Our PLACE into existence for caregivers and individuals impacted by Alzheimer’s/Dementia, and steady progress is being attained. As I alluded to in the last update, initial cost estimates received in September from renderings have escalated as expected resulting from increased material and labor costs. Correspondingly we have had to raise our fundraising goal from the initial $620k to $850k which includes the building, developing a road into our property, constructing a parking lot, and furnishing the inside of the building. Despite this increase, we are moving ahead and planning a groundbreaking ceremony knowing that we will need to rely on financing to cover any construction and first-year operational cost shortfall.
We believe the need for adult day services in Loudon and Monroe Counties, as well as surrounding communities more than warrants our progression with the project. We will need your help in attaining this new goal in order to open the facility and begin offering services in the first quarter of 2022. We hope that you will consider making a financial contribution. There are a number of ways you can show your support by participating in either the Commemorative Brick Program, Legacy Park, making a purchase through Amazon Smile, or making a stock, cash or check donation. One other possibility is to participate in one of the events listed on our calendar or help us by sponsoring an event. We can be contacted through this website or by email at email@example.com.
If you have a few minutes please take a look at our virtual (online) auction which is April 22nd through 26th www.32auctions.com/ourplace. You will be surprised by the many offerings from those who are supporting us. Best wishes and thank you in advance for any future support!
