Indianapolis Created 1 Project

So that we can all show our love and appreciation for Jim and Sarah.

We are redoing there outdoor living space. This includes a deck makeover, patio furniture, landscaping, and grill.

This is the current deck. We are replacing all of the deck boards, repainting the deck, and adding some privacy lattice around the sides.

The overall cost of this makeover will be about 1500 dollars.

The new deck will be a great place for Jim to do his yoga!!    

Wayne and Barb are also going to use their  skills and do some landscaping around the deck.

On top of the labor, we have a giant card floating around Alibi's Grill for all of us to sign. If you cannot make it into Alibi's before next week, can't join us Saturday, or you live out of town, just notify any contact from the bottom of this page and we will add your message to the card.

We all have different skills and resources so there are more ways to help than just giving money!!

How to give...

You may click support now on the side of this page and donate directly to the Jim and Sarah Love Fund. All funds donated go directly to the Jim and Sarah Love Fund.
