Garage Roof Completed


Sept. 29, 2019

This summer, Project Flo, using the donated shingles from Owens Corning, reroofed the home and painted it. It was clear the roof of the garage still needed work but we had expanded our time and resources for the year.

Not to fear, a call went out and neighbors gathered, as witnessed above. Using donated shingles, the crew pictured above got together and completely reroofed their neighbor’s garage in Alta Vista.

We stand in awe at how Alta Vista neighbors, and Chickasaw county, come together during times of need.

Well done gentlemen!

Project Flo 2019 – D.O.N.E.

If we could mark this year with a theme, it would be the year of “Community”!  We are humbled and amazed by the generosity of businesses, churches, past Project Flo recipients, schools, sports teams, and neighbors!
