2020 Project: Staff Home & Infrastructure
After a number of significant improvements at Longview, a big need that still remains is the addition of several staff homes. We plan to put in the first of those homes later this summer. Rather than having staff families live right in the middle of camp, we are developing a new staff housing area on our property about ¼ mile west of camp on Genesee Road. The Pendell family currently lives in a small one-bedroom cabin at camp with their three children and they will move into this first home once it is finished. The cabin they are currently in can then be used for campers, summer staff, or interns which makes this a win-win situation!
We looked at a number of homes this spring, but they were either in really rough shape or priced too high for our budget. Finally, in May, we found a three-bedroom, two-bath double-wide home with a great floor plan and the exact square footage we were hoping for. The interior needs a bit of renovation to get it up to par, but it met our price point with delivery included! The home is already paid for, the well is drilled, and finances are in place for the septic system and electrical service. The Lord has been at work in multiple ways!
We need your help to raise the remaining funds for this project. Our goal is to raise $14,300 to cover the foundation work, skirting, propane lines, front & back steps, repainting the interior walls, and making some needed repairs and updates. Will you please pray about what the Lord would have you give?
Gifts can be given online through the donate link below or checks mailed to: Longview Camp, 1976 Genesee Road, Arcade, NY 14009 with the word "Staff Home" in the subject line. Every gift is a tremendous blessing!
