June 21 – June 26, 2019

Project Flo 2019″ was a resounding success thanks to your kind and generous contribution to the project. We had nearly 70 volunteers working on renovating 6 homes this year, with many inquiries from others as to how they can help in 2020. We are happy to report that the Project Flo Association continues to grow and gain energy every year.  We had an abundance of skilled and talented labor this year.

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!

A large portion of Project Flo 2019 has been made possible by funds contributed by:
