On June 19-21, Good ADV partnered with Lost for a Reason in a long term project at Tohdenasshai Shelter Home in Kayenta, AZ. In late December, the shelter sustained major water damage due to frozen, broken pipes. LFAR descended on an initial project in January and discovered major damage to the interior part of the structure. Long story short, this was a significant renovation/repair project that would’ve cost more than $50k–something that the shelter could not afford. Lost for a Reason’s volunteers have worked 6 weekends on this project with major contributions from Franco Testa from Sand Diego’s My Plumber and numerous volunteers. We were also visited by Eric Hall from XLADV, Tolga Bassol on his RTW trip, and received significant help this June from John and Heidi from RawHyde, Rodney Reiman from Big Bear, CA, with the project leadership from LFAR’s Tom Kucera from Flagstaff.
Here are some pictures from the past weekend. A good time was had by all. We are now in the final phases:
Ron Grace, Tom Kucera, J.J. Lewis, and many other Lost for a Reason volunteers will return to complete this work in July (July 24-26 and July 31 – August 2). In addition to major sponsorship from Twisted Throttle, this work is supported by the profits from The Good Adventure Company. If you are interested in assisting LFAR in Kayenta those weekends, please contact GoodADVCompany@gmail.com for more information or visit www.facebook.com/lostforareason.com! We need your help to continue to make a difference in the lives of children and families on the Navajo Nation.
