MCYS Dedicates New Storage Building to Honor Grand View and HomeAid
October 27, 2010

HomeAid Houston and Grand View Builders joined representatives from Montgomery County Youth Services (MCYS) and Montgomery County Builders & Developers (MCBD) of the Greater Houston Builders Association to dedicate a newly constructed 600 square foot, climate-controlled storage unit for MCYS.  The new facility frees up actual living space for kids from MCYS to use as a family room, game room and space for reading and relaxing. 

Grand View Builders was the Builder Captain.  Ron Martin and Marc Jungers, both with Grand View Builders directed the construction.  Over the past few months, the team acquired 100% donations of the necessary materials, labor and services needed to complete the work. 

Taking part in the dedication included:  Marc Jungers and Ron Martin, Grand View; Scott Stevens, Montgomery County Builders & Developers board president; Alex Sutton, MCYS board president; John Bracken, MCYS executive director; Leslie King, HomeAid Care chairperson; Chris Denison, HomeAid board president; Bette Moser, HomeAid executive director, Lea Pipitone, HomeAid director of marketing and special events; Mike Dishberger, GHBA vice president and numerous vendors, MCYS staff and HomeAid board members.

 A check was also presented to Montgomery County Youth services by MCBD to purchase school supplies to help stock the storage facility.  MCBD also installed the shelving in the unit.  Scott Stevens lead that effort.  “It was very heart-warming to see so many vendors take part in the dedication at MCYS,” said Chris Denison.  “It was the perfect setting to express appreciation to everyone on the team that made this project a success.”
