To Our Friends and Neighbors in the Steamboat Island area:
For the past 10 years the members of St. Christopher’s Church (79th and Steamboat Island Road) have been planning a facility that will have a positive impact on the lives of all of us living in this area. Our projected 6,000 square foot community center includes multi-purpose rooms, a conference room and a large divisible meeting room. This project has been designed in large part in response to neighborhood surveys submitted by many of you. To build a facility for use an hour or so each week makes little sense compared to daily use by our neighbors.
St. Christopher’s members have raised just under a half million towards this 1.5 million dollar project and can take on a certain amount of debt. To close the gap we are inviting you to join the “900 Club”. This would be a generous group of neighbors giving a one-time tax-deductible gift of $500. Would you become part of this group? If 900 neighbors participate, construction could commence this fall.
With its Steamboat Island Road entryway, lighted parking, and clean modern facilities, this center will meet the needs of all ages and support many activities from scouts to 12- Step programs, after school tutoring, neighborhood association meetings, and senior activities to name just a few. We hope to be designated as a Red Cross Disaster Center.
You can help this facility happen with your gift to: “St. Christopher Community Center.” The appropriate IRS acknowledgment will be sent to you. Speaking of the IRS, you might consider contributing a portion of your one-time 2007 tax rebate since this is an unanticipated windfall and would serve to stimulate the local economy and support a worthy project. We heartily support this project and hope you will too. If you would like more information, please call 866-2111.
