Building on Hope deserving of support

To the Editor:

I would like the people of Bedford and the surrounding area to be aware of a wonderful opportunity for a worthy nonprofit. Building on Hope is a community organization of volunteers who work with builders, architects, designers, and suppliers to provide physical improvements to facilities of charitable organizations. Over the past six years, Building on Hope has completely transformed the facilities and grounds for three charities, and we are looking for our 2016 project.

Any interested nonprofit should write a letter to Building on Hope explaining how a remodeled building complete with top-notch interior design and upgraded furnishings could make a difference for them and those they serve. The committee will read all letters received by Jan. 30 and will select the best ones to invite them to formally apply for a Building on Hope “extreme makeover” in the spring of 2016.

Details and scenes of our previous projects are on the website and letters of interest can be written to co-chair of the steering committee Jonathan Halle at
