 Syringa House - Back Yard Project Minimize

Syringa House girls get new back yard!

 

We are living in a time when many people are afraid of what the future holds. Nothing seems to be secure, but this is the feeling that many girls have faced daily. To these for whom there has been no security or place to call home, the Syringa House in Nampa opens its door to welcome the broken and hurting girls that society has forgotten. They are part of the next generation who will soon become adults. Our goal is to teach and encourage these girls to be a healthy, positive part of the society around them.
 
Through the years that the Syringa House has been in operation in Nampa, we have been blessed with a continual flow of generous giving by people who have opened their own hearts to the girls we care for. In August 2007 a new home was completed and opened up in Nampa to replace the old house which had so faithfully served as often the only safe home these girls ever had.
 
The outpouring of support by this community is truly appreciated.
 
·        John Bell of Lumber Scape donated his artistic abilities and most of his time and supplies to design and build the backyard of the new home.
·        Dan Tietsort donated the prep work, cement, and installation for our patio extension and sidewalks to our Sports Court & Reflection Garden.
·        Patt’s Garden Center in Clarkston, Washington donated Calamagrotis Karl Reed Grass and Adam’s Garden & Nursery donate a Blue Atlas Cedar Tree and 3 Ivory Halo Red Twig shrubs. A team from Hewlett Packard’s EVA PMO (Program Management Office) helped plant our trees.
·        High School girls from Liberty Charter School in Nampa sanded and resealed our picnic tables.
·        Two new BBQ grills as well as a service technician to run the gas line under the house to the grills on patio were donated by Intermountain Gas Industries.
·        At our 3rd annual lawn party on August 16, 2008, just over $28,000 was raised for our Montgomery Sports Court.
·        In the Neil Smith Memorial Reflection Garden the girls will find comfort by the fountain, the flowers, and other plants, and they will see the names of many who care engraved on the bricks that will provide a foundation for the garden.  Engraved bricks were sold to cover our costs.
·        $1000 from Wal-Mart Community Grant and $1000 from Idaho Power’s Corporate Contribution Committee.

We want to express our immense gratitude to these wonderful businesses and individuals who have worked tirelessly to continue the work of rising up this next generation.

John Bell, Lumber Scape, Nampa - our landscaper!

 

The team from the Program Management Office of HP, Boise, helped to plant our trees!  Thank you Shari, Jerry, Sergio, Vicki, John, George, and Liliana!

Four high school girls from Liberty Charter School worked from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. to sand and reseal the picnic tables and bench for the Syringa House.  We really appreciate these girls for helping us with our needs.  These tables are the best they have looked in a long time.  Thank you!

 

Members of the Canyon County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans came to build gardens for the new backyard. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is a faith-based membership organization called to improve the quality of life of its members, their families, and their communities by providing unparalleled solutions that focus on financial security, wellness and caring for others.

Trinity Presbyterian Church in Boise, Idaho came to work on the backyard. They planted flowers, laid fertilizer, spread grass seed, pulled weeds, and then had a barbeque for the girls. The backyard looks wonderful and when the flowers and grass come in it will be spectacular. Thank you!!!
