We have made significant House upgrades this summer including new bathrooms, installing a new stove, repainting the entire inside, and making numerous other improvements. We would like to thank our recent contributors and especially thank our Jackson’s Men donors (click here for a full list) who have each donated more than $1,000 and without whom none of the House improvements would have been possible!

  2. Install curtains (Looking for an individual or class to make $1,200 donation)

Notes from Brothers

Brothers –

Keep up the great work! I am trapped in WI’s North Woods right now, so I hope some cash can help in my absence. I can’t wait to see the House when I am back in town.

Brothers –

I was looking at my phone today and it appears I called the house about six times around five am Sunday morning. As I recall, I was trying to inquire whether the refrigerator was running. Anyways, here’s my monthly contribution check.


Brothers –

William Granger Grace made his way into the world on July 9 at 11:42 PM. He’s 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and 20 inches long. His older brother, James, is very happy (and his parents are very tired!)
