YMSL Legacy Chapter's UG for City House

Tue, 11/29/2016 - 18:41 -- Heidi Holguin

Thank you to all of the 80 YMSL Legacy Chapter members who helped pull off such a HUGE transformation at City House.  We worked a total of 279 hours collectively and accomplished more than the initial scope of the project.  Wow!  I personally stand in awe of the work ethic and talent I witnessed on October 29 and 30th.  I loved seeing boys learn new things and most of all, the questions I received of why these girls live here and what exactly does City House do?  We had the honor and privilege that Denise Bothner, our National Ultimate Gift Chairman, paid us a surprise visit and came from Fort Worth to see what we were doing!  She had many meaningful conversations with us and met many of our members and the City House staff.   

Here is what was accomplished:  4 bedrooms, 3 closets, 2 bathrooms, entryway, stairway and kitchen walls and trim were painted.  (Think of all the prep that went into that!!)  Living room tv lowered to eye level and cables hidden inside wall, ceiling fans and doors cleaned, kitchen table refinished and missing glass replaced, large mirror hung, large bookcases/tv unit assembled ( City House has a flat screen tv that will be added), 3 desks and 2 chairs assembled, 2 wooden frame beds assembled, front and back yard redone with weeding, pruning, planting and mulch, 3 new planters painted and planted with new flowers AND to top it all off - 2 pottery barn teen quilt sets, many donated books, curtains for 2 rooms and 6 pumpkins were added to make the house beautiful!  Whew!! 

The funds that were so graciously donated were used to purchase the bookcase, 3 desks, 2 chairs, rug, pillows for couches, and supplies needed to paint and clean. 

City House would like to express to each of us how appreciative they are to all of us.  The leadership team from City House toured Goodman Home the day after the project and were completely amazed at the huge difference we were able to make in such a short period of time.  The girls living at the house saw the finished product late Sunday night and started giggling and jumping up and down.  They came charging at me with huge hugs and big smiles saying they never wanted to leave their new space.  "I just want to sit down and grab a book, and not have to leave," said Meagan, City House resident after seeing the upstairs lounge/study area.

Thank you to all of the 80 YMSL Legacy Chapter members who helped pull off such a HUGE transformation at City House.  We worked a total of 279 hours collectively and accomplished more than the initial scope of the project.  Wow!  I personally stand in awe of the work ethic and talent I witnessed on October 29 and 30th.  I loved seeing boys learn new things and most of all, the questions I received of why these girls live here and what exactly does City House do?  We had the honor and privilege that Denise Bothner, our National Ultimate Gift Chairman, paid us a surprise visit and came from Fort Worth to see what we were doing!  She had many meaningful conversations with us and met many of our members and the City House staff.   

Here is what was accomplished:  4 bedrooms, 3 closets, 2 bathrooms, entryway, stairway and kitchen walls and trim were painted.  (Think of all the prep that went into that!!)  Living room tv lowered to eye level and cables hidden inside wall, ceiling fans and doors cleaned, kitchen table refinished and missing glass replaced, large mirror hung, large bookcases/tv unit assembled ( City House has a flat screen tv that will be added), 3 desks and 2 chairs assembled, 2 wooden frame beds assembled, front and back yard redone with weeding, pruning, planting and mulch, 3 new planters painted and planted with new flowers AND to top it all off - 2 pottery barn teen quilt sets, many donated books, curtains for 2 rooms and 6 pumpkins were added to make the house beautiful!  Whew!! 

The funds that were so graciously donated were used to purchase the bookcase, 3 desks, 2 chairs, rug, pillows for couches, and supplies needed to paint and clean. 

City House would like to express to each of us how appreciative they are to all of us.  The leadership team from City House toured Goodman Home the day after the project and were completely amazed at the huge difference we were able to make in such a short period of time.  The girls living at the house saw the finished product late Sunday night and started giggling and jumping up and down.  They came charging at me with huge hugs and big smiles saying they never wanted to leave their new space.  "I just want to sit down and grab a book, and not have to leave," said Meagan, City House resident after seeing the upstairs lounge/study area.
