We’re almost there. Community Lifeline Center is hoping to begin operations from the new location at 1601 West University Drive in McKinney in mid December, thanks to the generous help and numerous gifts from several sources. Individuals have given cash donations to help defray the costs of the move, and those gifts are certainly appreciated. Some organizations have helped in the acquisition of equipment and furnishings that will be needed in the expanded facility, and that help is sincerely accepted. Grants have been received to cover the costs associated with outfitting the facility and supplying it, and those grants and their funders are truly valued.
“Sixty Home Depot employees donated their day off and all the tools and materials needed to renovate the new Community Lifeline Center offices . . . . The donations, a part of the Home Depot Foundation Celebration of Service, included electrical, painting, cabinetry, and flooring”. As additional needs were noticed, these volunteers continued to help, turning their one-day project into one lasting several days. The materials, as well as the time and talents of these workers, are greatly appreciated.
The Community Lifeline Center’s mission is to help those in the area who experience an unexpected crisis. The help we have received in preparing to move to a larger and better equipped location will, in turn, help the CLC to better assist those whose lives are suddenly upside down. By helping the CLC, those who donated money, goods, and time or talent have reached out in compassion to others in the community who, for a short time, couldn’t make it on their own. What a wonderful example of the CLC motto: “A community stands tallest when it kneels to offer a helping hand.”
We offer sincere thanks to all who helped make this move a reality.
