Home Depot makin' it happen!
Last month's Reason to Give home makeover project was one of my favorite weeks of work since I started at Firebelly two years ago. When everyone showed up on the first day at the Singleton's house, I don't think any of us could have imagined the incredible transformation that was about to happen. There was so much to get done and even though it seemed like an impossible task at the start, we did it.
We painted, laid new laminate flooring, landscaped the front and back yards, fixed plumbing leaks, updated bathroom and kitchen appliances, replaced moldy drywall, hung curtains, and brought in new furniture and linens. Perhaps more importantly, we worked together, gave lots of high fives, had a few sing-alongs, made new friends and helped a family come together to love and appreciate their house again. Maybe it would have been shorter to list what we didn’t do.
We can’t say THANK YOU enough to the Home Depot for the manpower, supplies + know-how, Anderson Pest Solutions for getting rid of the bugs, Rebuilding Exchange for the materials, Service Sanitation for the bathrooms as we fixed all the plumbing, Knockbox for the coffee to keep everyone awake, Colorphonic for the banner, Shannon Downey for the fantastic furniture, Coyote Logistics for sending a small army of workers and all the other amazing volunteers who showed up with smiles on their faces ready to get dirty and do some good. We couldn’t have done it without you + loved meeting y’all too.
And last, but certainly not least, Shannon Medic (Reason to Give’s Executive Director) is a rockstar. She had the vision for the project and got all the right people on board to make it happen. She’s also the only person I’ve ever seen do this much manual labor with perfectly polished nails. You go Glen Coco.
