Wheaton Bible Church Give Back
Grant & Power Landscaping, Inc.
along with volunteers from Wheaton Bible Church created a new place
to escape for the residents of Jubilee Village in Carol Stream,
Illinois, in celebration of Earth Day 2009 and PLANET (Professional
Landcare Network) Day of Service.
"It was awesome to see everyone pull together," said Sally
Strzalka of the Women's Ministry at Wheaton Bible Church. "We had
generous donations of time and resources and it only took one
question to make this happen… 'Would you like to help?'"
This beautiful outdoor living space was made possible by
donations and volunteers from Grant & Power Landscaping, as
well as volunteers from Wheaton Bible Church and donations by
Midwest Groundcovers, Unilock, Wilson Nursery, Western Irrigation,
Kaknes Landscape Supply, Home Depot of Carol Stream, and Kramer
"What also makes this project so unique is that the bricks that
were donated for the patio by Unilock, were the same ones used
around Buckingham Fountain in downtown Chicago," said Kathy
Richardson of Grant & Power.
Jubilee Village is a supportive living community for young
single mothers, age 18-25 years. Not only does Jubilee Village
provide shelter, but a lifeline to these women and their children
who may otherwise be homeless. At Jubilee Village, young mothers
find the tools to transition from being homeless to independent
living within 24 months. They are taught life skills through
ongoing education, spiritual development, and financial
supervision. In 2008, the Women's Ministry at Wheaton Bible Church
formed a partnership with Outreach Community Ministries, a national
organization, to serve the needs of Jubilee Village.
