Bank of America donated $4,000 to assist with materials for the event and 10 employees from the bank assisted with painting and other tasks on Thursday.  The Atlanta Remodelers Council was represented by 15 members and offered additional material donations for the work completed.  Pace Drywall, LLC made an enormous donation of professional painter labor for CAPN clinic.  Additional volunteers from Aycock Properties assisted as well.

Projects completed for Genesis Shelter included: purchase and install an accordion style door to separate a classroom, install melamine storage shelving, fix an exterior storage area and fence, repair cabinetry and replace a countertop at sink area in dining hall, remove old cabinets in lobby and install a Wilsonart countertop, paint a long hallway, install a door threshold, and install new tile.  CAPN clinic was professionally painted by Pace Drywall, LLC, closet shelving added, and a cracked commode was replaced.  Altogether, the improvements are valued at over $10,000.  HomeAid strives double (or more) each dollar donated through additional donations of labor and materials, which was accomplished during these care days at Genesis and CAPN.
