As the final post of 2008 we thought we’d do one that keeps with the spirit of the Holidays. So we decided to help out at the Samaritan House in Charlotte, NC.
Samaritan House provides recuperative care to the homeless when they are discharged from the hospital. They serve 3 meals daily in their dining room. One of their challenges space-wise, was how to store the food items for breakfast for the guests, as well as a new microwave that didn’t have a home.
To solve this problem, we assembled a Rubbermaid steel reinforced resin shelf and helped the storage space go vertical, freeing up the wall for extra chairs. Just wanted to share this quick trick, as the shelf assembly only took 5 minutes with entire project taking 15 minutes total!
