DMC Update 1 from St. Anthony’s: Windows Ordered!

April 26, 2017

Since our kick-off pizza party in March, Muscle Crew II is officially off and running!

As you are aware, our first project will be replacing doors and windows at the Cathedral of St. Anthony’s in Detroit, which has a pantry that feeds and clothes hundreds of needy Detroiters each year.

The project is being led by Mike Stephanoff, president of One Step Home Solutions in Warren. On April 7, Mike and Ron LaBarge, One Step’s VP, and fellow Muscle Crew volunteer Jim Primeau of Oxford, performed a site inspection at St. Anthony, which recently received a $5,000 donation from the Hole in the Roof Foundation.

Because of YOU, all labor will be done by our Muscle Crew volunteers, with the grant dollars going toward materials.

Mike’s assessment: We’ll be replacing 18 basement windows with prefabricated glass block units. In addition, a new steel entry door to the pantry will be donated by Madison Heights Glass Co​​. Thank you Madison Heights Glass Co! The windows are currently on order.

Watch this space — and your email inbox — for next steps in the coming weeks. Mike will be providing a timeline for the installation, as well as his projected number of volunteers that will be needed to remove and install the new windows.
