What an amazing year for ASID’s Community Services. We started out with a unique fundraiser (Poker Night) that was held on May14th, it was not only a fun night but also raised enough money to remodel the entire Boys Hope House! Once the budget was established the design plan began, sourcing out unique finds from thrift stores and estate sales giving the house a modern hip vibe. We had 10 days starting on June 17th while the boys were on summer break, the first few days were allocated to painting, then we moved on to replacing tile and carpet, and finally the finishing touches with furniture, hanging artwork and window treatments. We had our challenges with the short deadline but with hard work and dedication we pulled it off. The house turned out perfect and when the boys came home, they said they felt like they were on MTV’s Real World. Their genuine smiles and look in their eyes made it all worth it. Thank you to all who participated and was apart of this incredible project. We rocked this year’s community service project and Boys Hope Girls Hope couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
A message from Robin Sinclair Executive Director at Boys Hope Girls Hope: “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the renovation- absolutely gorgeous, and a home in which our scholars can be proud! You put the H in HOPE! Thank you Stephanie Cook and ASID for all of your creativity and hard work. We are forever grateful!”
