My name is Rod and I am a professional woodworker and a previous boxer in my younger years decades ago. I remember that boxing helped me through my teenage years and would like to help others turn their lives toward something positive, through sports and or a positive role models and motivation.
Mena is a city of about 6,000 located in Polk county about 25,000 residents. We are on the bottom of the totem pole as far as income and poverty levels even in Arkansas.
I own a large lot free and clear in town centrally located for easy access and it has all utilities available. It backs up to a wooded area that will make an awesome central location for a multi purpose building for sports and a community center for both younger folks and adults to work out and a safe place to hang out and get in condition for boxing and a host of other sports. I have several coaches on the ready to supervise and help anyone who wants to become a member of my new facility. If our building is completed we will be discussing with the city mayor and other local officials on them getting involved with my facility.
All we need is the funds to construct a good sized building for the activities and events and gym. The bids I have so far are about 55,000.00 to fully construct a metal type building with insulation and possibly a bit more to insulate and attach all utilities for bathrooms and showers and changing rooms.
If we receive the funding for my project it will be available for use for free for any investors for life and as a low cost membership( free for low income) for anyone in Arkansas. Thanks for looking and we appreciate any donors who have a heart to help us in the worthwhile cause. I am also donating my lot and time and other funding free of charge in getting this project funded and up and running. God Bless America Visit my website and see who we are
