Join Us at the Nashua PAL Youth Safe HavenKristen Dettoni
This past year, I have been volunteering with Building on Hope’s renovation of the Nashua PAL Youth Safe Haven. I was inspired to join the project when I heard about the work the Nashua PAL does for the kids in Southern New Hampshire. As well as their need for an upgraded space in which to do that work. If you enjoyed hearing about this project, I hope you’ll join us for the virtual grand reveal on Thursday, December 17 at 7 PM.
As with nearly everything this year, this project experienced a lot of surprises. Typically, a Building on Hope project involves an intense 10-day period of all hands on deck to complete the renovation. This year things were different. To protect the health and safety of volunteers and the community, the renovations were completed in phases throughout the year. The grand reveal had been planned for May, will finally take place virtually.
At the Nashua Pal Youth Safe Haven, I had the pleasure of meeting many talented designers, contractors, and builders.
I have introduced some of them on this blog, such as Lisa Law, Kelly Murphy, and Denyne Sanville. I was truly inspired by all the members of my local community who came together and donated their time and skills to this project. My responsibilities included designing the lobby of the building. Knowing this would be many people’s first impressions of the space, I wanted to include custom elements as well as handmade art pieces. I am so proud of the work I contributed and can’t wait for you all to see the final product!
If you are interested in tuning in for the virtual grand reveal, you can register here.
