    25-Day Blitz Build

    As we approach the conclusion of our 25 Volunteer Day Blitz Build, we are grateful to Sebert Landscaping for donating landscaping and volunteer labor to complete the all of the yardwork. The curb appeal transformation in one day was simply beautiful.

    The same day, we had a new corporate volunteer team from Salesforce on site. We are always looking for new corporate build day sponsors like Salesforce to join in partnering with our organization! If you are interested in receiving more information on how to get your work team involved, please contact Bill Klaves, Associate Director, at, or call 847-836-1432.
