The Senior Center of Rainier desperately needs a new roof and gutters. We have the original 1911 cedar shake roof with skip sheeting, which is covered by 2 layers of composition roofing.
We've been fundraising since we reopened October 5th after the COVID-19 "Stay Safe, Stay Home" order Governor Inslee proclaimed last March. This put quite a damper in our fundraising abilities.
Even though we were closed, we were still able to provide food to our seniors in need through the Farm to Families and 10 Weeks of Summer food distribution program. We also provided reading materials and other items needed by members of our local community.
The bids for a new roof are $40,000, plus another $4,000 - $5,000 for gutters. Our roof leaked so badly that some of our ceiling tiles are bent in the dining room.
A copy of our donation letter is below. We appreciate any help given to the Senior Center of Rainier as we work to get funding for a new roof. Thank you.
