In our efforts to Make a Difference in our community, WBIR is once again joining forces with the Homebuilders Association of Greater Knoxville and the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors for a Labor of Love. This time, we're focusing our efforts on the Sertoma Center, which houses adults with mental challenges. Right now, they have a huge waiting list, and aren't able to help as many people as they'd like.
That's where the Labor of Love steps in. With your help, we are going to work with the Sertoma Center to build a new duplex that will house six additional residents. Work began on July 10 and will continue over the next several months.
So how can you help?
At this time we are advising people to make monetary donations to www.sertoma.com. Go to “Opportunities to Help”, then go to “Giving Opportunities”, then “Overview”. They are accepting gift cards to places that sell home goods & small appliances. Donations can either be dropped off or mailed to 1400 East 5th Avenue, Knoxville 37917
In April of 2011, the Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville revealed the first of two Labor of Love home renovations to Love Kitchen co-founder Helen Ashe. Her sister Ellen's home would be revealed two months later. That same month, East Tennessee was hit by two damaging storms.
The storms did considerable damage to the Childhelp Tennessee building in Knoxville. Childhelp is a Children's Advocacy Center that helps with child abuse cases in the Knox County district. The center provides a place where Knox County's physically and sexually abused children can escape the red tape of the justice system and also receive treatment.
Childhelp Tennessee director, Hugh Nystrom, said Childhelp had to patch the roof following the 2011 storms. However, that was a quick and temporary fix. Members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville will strip the buildings current roof and replace it as well as repair brick facade on the outside of the building, fix the structure of the building and paint trim and renovate bathrooms inside the building.
