A Special Mother’s Day for All!
Yesterday for Mother’s Day, Yachad United, Yachad’s new network for young professionals committed to networking through hands-on community work, made the day of two local mothers. The group of about 25 young professionals spent the last two months fundraising over 3000 dollars to sponsor the repairs needed to the Trinidad row house inhabited by a mother, her adult daughter, and her daughter’s young son. Run much like a fundraising walk or run, each Yachad Uniter asked their friends and family to sponsor their efforts. With the funds raised, Yachad was able to pay for the professional work needed on the home such as roof repairs, drywall repairs and plumbing repairs. Yesterday, the group finished up the repairs needed such as painting and rebuilding the front porch. Accessibility modifications will also be made in the home which is sponsored by The National Fair Housing Alliance. After the home repair, the entire group celebrated down the street at the H Street Country Club, sponsored by Goose Island 312. More events like this will go on throughout the year. Sign up today by joining the Yachad United mailing list.
“Having been raised by a single working mother, I know, firsthand, the difficulty of maintaining a home alone. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to the rebuilding of this home and giving back to these mothers, quite appropriately, on Mother’s Day,” -Leanna Kramer, Yachad Uniter & TOP FUNDRAISER
