Leesburg Civitan and Local Businesses Build a New Back Porch for People with DisabilitiesPosted by: admin | Posted on: February 3, 2009
3/21/2008 – Leesburg, FL – Friday, March 21, 2008
On Friday, March 21, 2008, SunriseArc and members of the Leesburg Civitan, met at SunriseArc’s Leesburg group home, to showcase the beginning of a brand new back porch for the group home. The group home previously did not have a wheelchair accessible outdoor seating area for the residents. The entire project is funded by generous donations from the Leesburg Civitan, local businesses, and donated time and labor from members of the community. Lewis Brothers Contracting in Bushnell, Florida donated materials and labor for the concrete slab. The donated concrete slab and the forthcoming back porch will measure 10 ft. high by 34 ft. across. A fundraising campaign is currently underway through the Leesburg Civitan to complete work on the new back porch. When finished, the porch will be wheelchair accessible, screened in, and will provide a very comfortable place to spend beautiful spring evenings.
If you are interested in donating to the Civitan fundraising campaign for the SunriseArc Group Home, you can contact Deb McCoy at (352) 330-0844.
Special thanks are also in order to the contributing members of the Leesburg Civitan: Paul Deely, Florence Deely, Joe Brannon, Margaret Brannon and Robert Ausbrooks, as well as the entire Leesburg Civitan organization!
