Residential Revival Project

$775.00 raised
GOAL: $500.00

We're excited to announce our Residential Revival Project presented by Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty!

Our 2018 beneficiary, Raymond Thomas, is a disabled veteran who has lived in the community with his wife, Debra, for 25 years; and they raised their children in their home at 245 W 6th Street. 
 
In 2017, SPAR worked with a senior resident to complete a small scale exterior renovation that included necessary maintenance and repair due to the age of the home. With $1000 for materials and the help of donations and volunteer work, SPAR was able to do the equivalent of $8000 worth of repairs. Because of the success and continued need in the neighborhood for similar projects, SPAR will continue the program to assist a minimum of one low to moderate income resident each year with the costs of exterior maintenance and restoration of their historic homes. 
 
Our work weekend with volunteers will be held on September 21st and 22nd, there will be 2 shifts per day, and sign-up for volunteering will be available soon. 
 
If you would like to contribute financially to the Residential Revival Project, your donation will have a lasting impact on the community. (Any excess funds will go towards future Residential Revival Projects)

We are working on partnerships with Jacksonville businesses to preserve and revitalize this historic home in the neighborhood. If your business is interested in contributing through donation of materials, trade work, or volunteer hours, please email sparoffice@sparcouncil.org

Made possible by generous support from Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty and Local Initiative Support Corp. (LISC)
