Dear Friends and Supporters,
For the birds, we offer a huge THANK YOU! We had 61 individuals or families contribute $11,046 in response to our holiday mailing. We also had 11 individuals contribute $845 on the SD 1 st Day of Giving at the end of November. This is about 10% of what we need to move to the property.
In “concrete” terms, this means pouring foundations for our first bird buildings! The board is moving forward at all possible speed, getting bids and contracting with a firm to do the work. Volunteers will put up the first building, which was constructed for us by the Box Elder Job Corps carpentry students in 2016.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming events. And remember to bring your Family Fare grocery store receipts to any event. We are striving to reach $100,000 in receipts, which will earn us another $1,000.
Be involved with us as we take flight!
Maggie Engler and John Halverson
