Banderas Bay Women's Shelter Construction Update

David Zude - Banderas Bay Women's Shelter
May 20, 2014

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter with your time, finances and prayers. We remain optimistic that the shelter will be completed near the end of this year.

Unfortunately, funds right now are very tight and there are a lot of expenses (doors, windows, stucco, paint, flooring, etc.) and unless we receive a good infusion of funds before the end of this month we will have to lay off two of our four workers.

On December 28, 2013 I sent out a list of the materials needed to complete the shelter. The cost of these materials totaled approximately $61,000. I pledged to match every dollar donated with a 50 cent donation until we reached our $61,000 goal. So far we have received $10,900 in donations. Thank you everyone!

I have gone ahead and donated all of my $20,000 matching funds in order to keep construction going. We still need $30,000 to be able to complete construction. The possibility exists that we will receive some funds in September and then again in October, but there are no guarantees.

If you have been considering donating, please do so now. If you have donated in the past, please consider donating again. If you haven't yet shared what we are doing with you contacts, please do so now. Together as a community we can build this shelter. This shelter cannot be completed without your help.
