You have helped us raise thousands to help families affected by disaster and assist in disaster relief efforts, now lets show them what you are made of again! We have found a building!!! Although, non-profit, working to obtain our 501c3 Status, we need your help to get in the building!
This building will not only provide an office area and warehouse for us BUT it will allow us to house volunteers, it has a full kitchen, it has a bathroom (with shower) and a room off the office, big enough for people to sleep. The building was built to where the owner can easily expand if need be. There is plenty of room for a community tornado shelter (which is in our future plan) and community garden. The building’s office area will allow us to accommodate volunteers that come in to update and inform via the web. The warehouse has plenty of room to hold the machinery needed to immediately respond to disasters. There is extra storage shed on the backend on the building. This building will allow us to have a place to put the donations we receive somewhere other than our livingroom, laundryroom and downstairs. 😉
This building sits on 3.395 acres. This will allow us to be one of the VRCs (Volunteer Registration Centers) for VOAD. The acreage will also make it possible to set up a cooking tent/soup kitchen in the event of another local disaster. This property will only help us, but it will help our community even more.
We have to raise $290,000 in order to get into the building. There are so many ways you can help raise money! Give up your birthday, run a race, sell lemonade, sell baked goods, shave your mustache…grow a mustache! You can do anything to fundraise for KeepVolunteering.org. We need your help to reach our goal!
