Clean Up Day at Hope House!

This past Saturday, November 17, 2007, we had a few folks for the Home Educators of Yuma homeschool support group (H.E.Y.) come across the border to help us with a general clean up at the new building. Special thanks to the Adler family - Jim, Allison, Tyler, Jonathan and David and also to Irene Heinz for all their help in sweeping and scrubbing, mopping and organizing!

We had sent out a call for help with cleaning supplies - buckets, mops, brooms, etc. - to the homeschool group, asking them to bring the supplies to Friday's day in the park. We were humbled and excited at the same time by the abundance with which the families responded. We received enough supplies to not only clean on Saturday but also to keep the house clean for weeks to come! Thank you, H.E.Y.!!!

Irene scrubs the walls.

Jim worked with Joe to check out all the electrical connections, breakers boxes, etc.

Even the boys got involved!

And, of course, there was lunch!

Thanks again for all your help!
