Project Flo 2020 – Is in the Books!

I think we can all agree, 2020 has been a trying year. Especially for everyone trying to maneuver this global pandemic! When assessing the feasibility of whether or not to move forward, the board went to their volunteers and prayer. The answer was unanimous! 2020 was a “go”!

We scaled down our projects to complete our scope of work and not exhaust our volunteer base. Everyone masked up, washed their hands, social distanced and hunkered down to complete our commitment. In the end, we took a step back and were amazed at all we were able to accomplish.

We cannot express our gratitude enough! Thank you, volunteers. Thank you, donors. Thank you, businesses! Thank you, prayer warriors! Such an amazing village!

From Project Flo Association board of directors and from our families, whose lives have been forever changed and who are eternally grateful, THANK YOU! We appreciate you!
