Holy Spirit Church Sacristy Renovation and Grounds

Hello, my name is David Braen. I am a Life Scout of Troop 159 in Hewitt, NJ and graduate of Holy Spirit School, Class of 2018. I am working towards my Eagle Project. For those of you who are unfamiliar, I need to complete a project that benefits the community in order to achieve the rank of Eagle. This project will take place at Holy Spirit Church (318 Newark Pompton Turnpike, Pequannock Township, NJ 07440). I am raising funds to renovate the sacristy and neaten up the grounds surrounding the parish.

What the funds will be used for:
Indoors: retiling the floors, paint for walls and cabinets, drawer handles, countertop, new curtains, and the equipment needed to assemble those materials. Outdoors: mulch and new benches.

This project has many moving parts, all taking a lot of focus to complete. I plan on doing everything in stages, starting with tiles, painting, countertop, and outdoor work. If everything goes to plan, the project should be completed by early to mid-September

What you can do:
All donations, no matter how big or small, make a huge difference and are greatly appreciated. If you are unable to donate, please share this GoFundMe page to others. Additionally, if you would be interested in helping on site, please contact me and we can arrange something.

I hope that you are all doing well during these times and enjoying your summer.
Thank you,
David Braen
