Criniere Extreme Home Makeover Update #3

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

One last push to get the exterior projects done

- Ryan Corrigan

Check out the new page dedicated to the project Megan has been absolutely stunned by the ongoing efforts by the community to do an extreme home makeover for the family. Their home has always needed a lot of work, and Charlie always dreamed about making their home a great place to raise their growing family, but they never had the funds to make it a reality. But now, his dreams are coming true because of the generosity of the community. Many of these projects were made possible because of donations from people like you. Thank you so much! Over twenty companies have contributed to the project! Currently, we are sprinting to finish the outdoor projects - all we need is $2,500 to install the privacy fence and $6,500 for a shed, and the outdoor transformation will be complete!!! So far, we don't have any companies or donors for this, but we are trusting that God will provide. So far, Megan has not had to use any of her own money to do any of this! Incredible - and let's keep that going!
