Wicomico Rotary Club Teams up with Gillis Gilkerson to Meet Village of Hope Housing Need

DSCN1396SALISBURY, MD – July 31, 2014 – The Wicomico Rotary Club, announced the  completion of a bedroom addition/renovation project at The Village of Hope      located at 1001 Lake Street in Salisbury, Maryland.  The Wicomico Rotary Club    teamed up with Gillis Gilkerson and other local businesses (Lifetime Masonry,    Bozman’s Floor Coverings, Seaside Electric, Salisbury Door & Hardware, Bayside  Fire Protection and Superior Coatings) on this Community Service Project.

 This team of professionals and community members converted an existing      storage closet into an additional bedroom connected to a family unit in the    women and children’s section located in the transitional housing building.

 “I learned about the needs of The Village of Hope in a Rotary meeting and as a member of the Community Service Committee, immediately felt that we could give a hand up,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson and fellow Rotarian.  “The team working on the project was aware of the growing need for transitional housing for women and children and worked diligently to complete the transformation in less than a month’s time.”

“We are grateful for the renovation work that was done as we are seeing more and more women with two or three children come through our doors looking for assistance,” said Jasime Rogers, executive director, Village of Hope.  “It was amazing to watch business professionals and community members working together to build a more comfortable living space for those families in need.”

The project is a major win for the community, and the market is really responding well. I was happy with the way Gillis Gilkerson handled the delivery of this project in a time of disruption. COVID presented manpower and procedural issues but their onsite staff was attentive and pushed through to deliver the final project
