“I’m Ready to Paint…Won’t You Help Me!”

Sep 18, 2016In The Community

Hi I am Lindsay Hillegas, a senior at Penn Manor working on a Take Action Project to earn my Girl Scout Gold Award by partnering with Mom’s House of Lancaster.

My project is to create an information station in the lobby and create an inviting space for program participants to feel welcome and supported.

I have planned to paint the 1st floor lobby and install a pamphlet station but more can be done with YOUR help!

The lobby at Mom’s House serves many purposes such as food and donation drop off and storage, a mall center, a greeting area with a child friendly play station.

Please join me for the kickoff of MHoL Volunteer Saturdays! Staring this month every 4th Saturday of the month Mom’s House will invite volunteers to help with various jobs that will help Mom’s House further their mission. I am so excited to partner with Mom’s House for their first Volunteer Saturday!

THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 FROM 8AM TO NOON – We will be cleaning, patching walls, painting and organizing!

My goal is to find community partners that are willing to donate their time, skill set, and resources to further my lobby renewal project. If you feel called to serve others in this capacity please contact me (runvalley@comcast.net) or Mom’s House (info@momshouselancaster.org) for more details!

Potential Lobby Improvement Needs-I could use your help with:

  • Painter to paint 2nd story of the lobby
  • Carpenter to install new lobby floor approximately 31 x 15 ft.
  • Carpenter to close off old mail slot
  • Removal of old logo/sign in 2nd story
  • Artist/Sign maker to create a new logo signage in lobby
  • Storage for food donations
  • New kids table, chairs and toys
  • New carpet for lobby
  • Monetary donations

Your help will  better lives touched by the Mom’s House Program AND will also allow me to achieve my dream of earning my Girl Scout Gold Award!

See you this Saturday – 8:00 AM!
