We have been blessed regarding the Rotary Fire Fighters Home second apartment!  Through the diligent efforts of Jerry Harris and Marsha, Mattress Mack of Gallery Furniture has committed to providing all the furniture for the second apartment! He is actually holding a press conference at the apartment the end of this month, to announce his donation and support of our project. We will be signing the lease on the second apartment the third week of July.  Then, we will begin moving in the dishes/housewares/wall decorations.  The weekend of July 27th, Gallery Furniture will deliver their furniture.  
Your help is needed in three ways: 
1) We still need houseware items for the apartment.  Please post the link to our Target Registry on your social media pages or make a purchase yourself.  The link is: 
2)  Volunteer to help us set up the apartment (we need two or three volunteers for this at most), and the date will be sometime between July 22nd and July 26th;
3)  Volunteer to help us with the Open House, which will be held on Sunday, July 29th from 2-4 PM. We need a couple of volunteers to help set up for the Open House and a couple of volunteers to help clean up afterwards. Set-up begins at 1:15 pm and clean-up should be completed no later than 5:00 pm. Please confirm with Brittany Johnson, Community Director, to sign up as a volunteer (832-725-0079).
FYI...Everyone is invited to attend the Open House, purpose of which is for you to see the apartment and to better understand the project in general.
We are excited to be expanding the number of apartments and we are excited to now be partnering with Gallery Furniture and Mattress Mack! Our first occupant, a firefighter from Beaumont, moves in on August 1st. The other apartment is occupied through September, as of right now.  Of course, this is a moving target because cancer is so unpredictable.
Thank-you for your support.
