The roof over the stairwell and the roofs of all the buildings need periodic resealing to prevent water damage. Some of the buildings need a purchased sealer that costs about $50 dollars each 5 gallon bucket. Several buckets are needed each time we need to reseal. Other roofs needed a mixture of white cement and other products and is applied with old brooms. This type of sealing will cost approximately $75 dollars for all the supplies.
Several metal shelves are needed in our expanded kitchen.
We received a grant from Herbalife Foundation to expand our kitchen. The project has been completed and new space has been added that will give us much more storage space. Now we need help to purchase some metal shelving to store purchased and donated food items.
This vehicle runs almost non stop with taking kids and staff to appointments, etc, and many errands in the day.
Both our vehicles were purchased through our applying for Federal government funds for non profit organizations. The maintenance and insurance costs are difficult to keep up with.

This vehicle is not used as much but it takes groups of children on outings or to events in the city. It is important for the safety of the children that we are able to keep the van in good condition. We all know expenses are often great and unexpected when we have a vehicle. Please support this important work that gives many children a wonderful place to be in their time of great need.
