All kitchen renovations were done by Rapid Redec, Inc. To keep
inconvenience to a minimum, old cabinets, counter tops, sinks, and
flooring were removed and replaced in one-day’s time.
Residents were without cooking facilities for 3 days as the kitchen was
being painted and moldings were installed. As each resident received
their new kitchens, accommodations were made available in an unoccupied
apartment. Furniture was donated through Civic Concern and meals
were made available through Michelle’s Hearth, Main Street Catering,
Little Italy, and Jet’s Pizza.
Old kitchen cabinets were placed for sale with about 40% being sold.
Packing boxes and meals were purchased with the $1600 received through
the cabinet sales.
