New Building Demo

Great news! We are finally getting ready for demolition at the new building, 2500 Metro.  

We are going to take that responsibility on ourselves, saving $36,000 if we can get it done. We will also be doing some cleaning, painting and fixing of the building. So we have set demolition/work days...

Thursday -- January 8th, 10-3

We are inviting all able bodied men, women, older children, Scout troops, college students home on break, high school students needing service hours, skilled and unskilled. There will be lots of things to do, big and small jobs, including carting things away.

Big change and growth is on the horizon for DaySpring! Now is the time for action- we are going through the purchase process of the new building up the street, completing inspections and meeting with architects, but we're still raising funds for the down payment. 

Please consider donating, as generously as you can, to the future of DaySpring now. This is a crucial time- we need to raise $75,000 in the next two weeks to be able to move forward now with the building purchase. And remember, we still have the matching grant so anything you give is doubled, or if your employer matches it will be quadrupled!!

You can click left to donate via PayPal, or you could send us a check- both ways are easy!

If there is anyone you know that also might be interested in helping DaySpring move forward, please let us know. We're glad to talk to anyone about our plans and exciting vision for the future!

The New Building                   

At 2500 Metro Blvd., DaySpring will be able to better serve our students and the community.
