Residential Revival Project

$825.00 raised
GOAL: $2,000.00
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. Our 2018 Residential Revival project benefited a long-term Springfield disabled veteran and his wife. Thanks to generous donations and volunteer work, SPAR was able to take an initial $1,000 and turn that into the equivalent of $15,000 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 2019 Residential Revival Project will be at 223 W 8th Street. Chris and Beth have lived in the home for the last 23 years, and raised their daughters in the home. This unique property on one of Springfield's main roads, features a butterfly style front porch. The focus of this Residential Revival Project will be on preserving this special historic feature of the home. 
Volunteer weekend: Our first volunteer weekend will be April 26 and 27. Sign up to volunteer!
 
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 - Town Center, Local Initiative Support Corp. (LISC), and the City of Jacksonville with their COJ Community Matching grant.

Our partners for the 2019 Residential Revival Project include: 1748 BakehouseColdwell Banker Vanguard Realty - Town Center, Eddis and SonsLandVilla Outdoor, M & M Estate, Smith Brothers Plastering Company Inc., Social Grounds CoffeeSouthern Brothers, PublixStellar Foundation, TerraWise HomesUp-Side Management Company, The Walnut InnWaste Watchers, Danielle Pierro

Off-Duty Officer Fund - Single Donation

The Off-Duty Officer Fund pays for additional police patrol coverage in our neighborhood during certain times of year when criminal activity in Jacksonville usually trends upward, such as summers and holidays. We also have the ability to direct our off-duty officers to target specific concerns or locations reported by residents, if needed. This service is in addition to the regular police patrol coverage in our area. The Off-Duty Officer Fund is 100% funded by neighbors and community partners. Questions? Let us know. Thank you for donating below!

Residents may also wish to attend monthly Sheriffs Watch meetings, where they meet with local law enforcement to discuss any concerns, ask questions and share information.  Our area's Sheriff Watch meetings are the third Tuesday of the each month, 6pm, on the second floor of the Robert F Kennedy Community Center (1133 Ionia Street).

Hello,


I am interested in hearing about volunteer opportunities. I work in the technology field and would be more than happy to help with technology needs, but would like to hear about opportunities in all categories.


Thank you,


Amanda
