Building A Foundation With Our Community

The first three homes at The Woods at Golden Given are well underway. When complete, The Woods will offer 30 units of affordable homeownership to low-income families in Pierce County.

Each June, TCT members plan a Saturday to provide lunch to Habitat for Humanity volunteers. This year, TCT also had volunteers to help with the build.

This was a wonderful opportunity to witness first hand how funds raised at the Spring Open contribute to the building of new homes.

A big thank you to TCT Board member Mark MacLeod of Best-Ways for coordinating this event!

 

We had a great time at the 2013 Habitat Day! Take a look at these photos.

Habitat For Humanity Day!

We had a great time at our annual Habitat for Humanity day on June 9, 2012!

Construction is currently in full swing on houses in the Ainsworth Vista neighborhood!

 

This was a wonderful opportunity to witness first hand how funds raised at the Spring Open contribute to the building of new homes. We also had the opportunity to tour the local job site. Several TCT Board members and members of their families were there to prepare and serve lunch to some awesome Habitat volunteers who were working on building the houses at Ainsworth.

 

Thank you to Mark Macleod of Best-Ways for coordinating this event!

 

A big THANK YOU to TCT Board Members Bonnie Geise of SeaFreeze/City Ice Cold Storage, and Patricia Hutchinson of Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc, for coordinating the 2012 Carla Martin Bandage Drive for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital!

And, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our members! Through your generosity, TCT donated a record 4,300 boxes of fun, kid-approved bandages! With an average of 20 bandages per box, that’s a total of 86,000 smiles on kids faces!

The Carla Martin Bandage Drive for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital was officially announced during the February 13 Club meeting. Ms. Barbara Bartolatz Littrell, Community Development Coordinator for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital was on-hand to talk about the benefits of allowing young patients some control in their treatment even if it is just being able to pick out their bandage.

Ms. Bonnie Geise, from Seafreeze/CityIce and TCT Board Member is the TCT liaison and Bandage Drive coordinator. “The goal is to exceed 2,656 boxes of latex free bandages for this year’s drive” she reported.

All boxes of bandages should be dropped off at the March 13th TCT meeting.
