Charlotte’s Home Is Almost Complete!
Posted by advantagemarketing on October 29, 2015
In May I shared the story of Charlotte Downey, a multiply handicapped 11-year-old girl who was in desperate need of a better functioning, safer house. Working with Heartworks, an acts of kindness group, my friends at Coppola Brothers Construction stepped in to see how they could help make this dream a reality for Charlotte and her family.
They saw that the family really needed many things: a functioning kitchen, a handicapped accessible bathroom, and a living space that could accommodate all of Charlotte’s medical equipment just to name a few. They hoped to provide the family with an all-around better functioning and more comfortable home.
Five months later, the renovation is almost finished! The home is 99% complete, thanks to a Heartworks fundraising campaign and the Coppola Brothers team who worked with tradespeople and vendors to raise in-kind gifts of more than $100,000.
A final $14,000 will make this renovation complete. They are so very close to reaching their goal! Please spread the word to anyone or any company who can help carry this project across the finish line.
