Jacob’s Well Ribbon Cutting
There was a loud cheer from over 300 people at the new Vision House complex, Jacob’s Well, for homeless mothers and their children. The ribbon cutting celebration and work party on Sunday, September 15thfrom 1:00 – 4:00pm was a great success! Guests enjoyed a barbeque by award-winning Smokey’s of Cle Elum, potluck dishes, tree and shrub planting and tours of the 12 apartments and children’s center.
Hours volunteered and donated supplies and services equate to over a million dollars saved, allowing Vision House to build the Jacob’s Well complex debt-free. This has happened thanks to the generosity of approximately:
– 3,000 individuals
– 200 businesses
– 65 churches
– 30 organizations
– 20 foundations
Only $82,000 is left to raise to complete the first of the two buildings, which is amazing considering that the total cost for this first phase was $2.7 million!
