Rhino Garcia Foundation and Building For Hope Have Teamed Up To Help Local Residents
Building For Hope is Underway to Help Local San Antonio Residents
Mr. Garcia who owns a local construction company called Rhino Design Build, LLC just recently registered his non-profit called: Rhino Garcia Foundation. The Foundation will focus on helping local families that are financially challenged and are living in homes that don't meet current building code. Building For Hope has recently teamed with Catholic Charities and are currently raising funds to help their first client, Mr. Limon. Like many other elderly folks living on a fixed income Mr. Limon has struggled to maintain his home, which is in need of many repairs. Times have been especially hard for him in the summer and winter seasons because his home has no cooling or heating system. Because of this, Mr. Limon has resorted to heating his home with his gas stove during the cold months. Despite having saved some of his small income to afford the upkeep, he had the misfortune of falling victim to fraud at the hands of an untrustworthy home repair provider who failed to deliver on services promised. He also doesn't have running water in his shower and has to heat the water in pots on his stove and transfer them to buckets and take them to the shower in order to bathe.
Building For Hope is currently accepting sponsorship applications and donations. “We can't do this alone, so we are trying to spread the word about what we are doing in order to get more sponsorship which will help us help more families.”
