Building For The Future Of SOS
In 2001 SOS purchased and renovated a 37,000 square foot facility on Poplar Avenue in the heart of Binghampton. This facility is used to house, train, feed, and provide programming for over 2,000 volunteers every year as they make critical home repairs to over 40 homes in Binghampton and Orange Mound. It is a crucial part of our mission and strategy to empower people and create thriving communities.
In the past 10 years we have spent $650,000 on capital repairs and improvements to this facility. And now that all the major systems are 15+ years old, we anticipate another $450,000 in capital repairs and improvements in the coming three years.
We are raising $1.1 million to cover those upcoming capital needs as well as provide a reserve fund to meet capital needs beyond the next three years.
Will you commit to helping SOS build a firm foundation for the future with a gift to this capital campaign?
