Northshore Fuller Center Announces First Project

May 14, 2009

I want to do a quick follow-up to last week’s blog about the Northshore Fuller Center.  The Northshore Fuller Center has broken ground for its first project.  Delores Black, who lost her home during Hurricane Katrina, will have a new place to live.  The Northshore Fuller Center and its volunteers will be rebuilding her home.  Delores has been trying to rebuild her home for three long years.  With help from family and friends, Dolores saved $65,000.  She discovered that, even with the money she had saved and the plans a friend drew up for her, she still could not afford to rebuild.
 
Her daughter, Beverly Black, approached the director, Charlie Park of the Webster Parish covenant partner of Fuller Center, to ask if the center could help her mother.  Beverly received the good news that David and Tamara Danel were opening the Northshore Fuller Center in Hammond.  After hearing her story, David and Tamara agreed that this was the perfect “first project”.  Delores Black was in for the surprise of her life.  Tamara and Beverly made the official announcement on Mother’s Day, during services at the Greater Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church of Belle Chasse, Delores’ home church.

The Northshore Fuller Center is off to a great start.  I am sure we will hear more about their efforts to improve our community and help our neighbors in the future.  Congratulations to Delores Black and to the Northshore Fuller Center.
 
If you would like to be a part of this effort or want to know more about the Northshore Fuller Center, give Tamara Daniel a call at (985) 507-0732.  You may also contact the center by e-mail at northshorela@fullercenter.org.
