Pinellas Park, Fla. -- WorldLegacy’s NC177 Leadership Team, based in Chapel Hill, N.C., will complete an extreme makeover of the Vincent House in Pinellas Park, Fla., Aug 2 - 4. Nine individuals from all over the U.S. and abroad will completely renovate and create a Wellness Room at the Vincent House.
They will renovate an existing area by removing a wall, repainting the room, installing new flooring, and adding commercial grade treadmills, exercise bicycles and free weights. In addition, the team will repaint five other rooms. The intention is to leave a lasting gift to these people and have them understand that they matter.
This WorldLegacy Leadership team is committed to assist people with mental illness in their lives, to improve social and vocational skills, encourage full self-expression and connect people to their families. They intend to support family members in having their loved ones feel free, independent and healthy.
This extreme makeover project is the culmination of WorldLegacy’s three-month leadership development program. What makes this project unique is that the WorldLegacy Leadership team must completely design the project from start to finish, cannot use any of their own money, cannot raise money, and must involve the community be partners and do 75% of the work. The project must be completed in three days or less.
The WorldLegacy NC177 Leadership team asks for partnership to make this project possible. Interested volunteers can participate in all aspects of the work. The adventure will begin on Friday, August 2, at 6 pm and 8 am both Saturday and Sunday. All work will be completed by Sunday afternoon and will culminate with a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning 6:30 pm on Sunday, August 4. The ceremony will celebrate and honor all donors, volunteers and leaders who gave of their time, talents and resources to make the project a success.
