Kids Kottage Makeover
Kids Kottage has existed for more than 20 years, and in those 20 years, we have had so many amazing groups of donors and volunteers come through the Kottage and offer their products and services to renovate and improve the Kottage. From new kitchens, to playground equipment, to beautiful bedrooms for the children, each room in the Kottage has benefited from this generosity.
As with most charities, the administration space at Kids Kottage had never been a priority – and for good reason! But when our friends at Source Office Furniture came by, they found themselves uniquely qualified to help, offering to renovate our entire office space, and we were so excited to accept!
It meant a lot of work – going through more than 20 years-worth of clutter and junk is enough to overwhelm the most seasoned of organizers, and we definitely weren’t that! It also meant a few last minute rescues from other businesses in the community who arrived in the nick of time with the finishing touches – Home Depot with a beautiful new floor, and Hunter Douglass, with gorgeous new blinds.
With Source volunteers led by Manning Brothers Painting spending spending their time moving out our old furniture, painting our walls beautiful blue and gray, and Home Depot tearing up the carpet that had been here longer than we had, it was a busy and hectic week. But at the end of the day, our new office space is beautiful, functional, and clears away so much clutter that lets us focus more on what we’re all here to do – keep Edmonton kids safe.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered, to Source Office Furniture for our new workstations, to Home Depot for our floor, and Hunter Douglas for our window coverings!
