I wanted to update everyone one our local fundraising efforts. This is a HUGE project, but we are still making forward momentum. Our in-kind donations have reached just over $10,000! We have been blessed by a number of local fundraisers that have been done on our behalf. A local family, had a lemonade stand and the children donated 1/2 their proceeds to this park project. It was wonderful for them to come over and meet the kids that will have an opportunity to experience a playground, like never before. It was so refreshing to meet young children with such huge hearts.
DHS Child Welfare office in Coos County also hosted an internal fundraiser, raising over $200! They made lunches for the staff and donated the proceeds to Dillian's Place. Not shortly thereafter, APD (Aging and People with Disabilities) also held and internal Spaghetti feed and desert auction that also raised funds to contribute to the park.
We have been blessed by the outpouring of our community as we see so many people getting behind this park project.
