SO…we have accomplished Phase 1 of the Foundation. We have 5 apartments up and running, almost always occupied. In fact, we are running at 94% capacity, which is amazing! When we began this journey, we described it as “jumping off a bridge, not knowing where we would land.” Now we are moving on to Phase 2, facing another bridge, so to speak. This phase will add five more apartments by the end of 2020. In order to do that, we have begun our “Coffee Money Fund Raising Campaign. And it looks something like this, all based on donating an amount less than a cup of coffee per day!
Our goal is to get at least 200 people who would sign up to donate $25.00/month on a recurring basis. This can be done on our website http://www.jcevansfoundation.org. Follow the instructions on the circle, above. If we reach our goal, we will be able to easily open five more apartments, which will ease a very pressing problem for transplant patients in Atlanta. The need is great. In the last four weeks, we had to turn away 15 transplant families. It’s easy to see how these donations will help.
