On Friday, May 6th, volunteers from the 2011 Leadership for 5 Seasons Class provided the Foundation 2 Youth Shelter with an “extreme makeover.” Foundation 2 was able to link this project with Shelter Awareness Day, which is celebrated at shelters throughout the state of Iowa.
These fabulous volunteers raised funds to replace worn furniture, light fixtures, outdated decorations and faded paint. After the donations were obtained, they painted several rooms at our shelter including the Family Counseling area, the dining area, main bathroom and several staff offices. We can’t believe how amazing the Shelter looks. It truely is a more comfortable and welcoming place for our residents to call “home.”
Please enjoy the attached photos- but there is more to come! Several parts of the project are still works in progress. We can’t wait to share the finished project with you.
