THANK YOU. THE LOCAL SHELTER THAT HELPS WOMEN AND CHILDREN NEEDS SOME HELP. THE KITCHEN COULD USE A SERIOUS MAKEOVER. AND HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED. Reporter: GOOD MORNING. WELLS SPRINGS IS WELL LOVED. AND THEY NEED SOME ATTENTION TO THAT KITCHEN. THEY DO AMAZING THINGS, AND WELLSPRINGS HAS BEEN HERE FOR 30 YEARS. WHAT YOU DO AND WHO DO YOU SERVE? WE SERVE AN AVERAGE OF 200 WOMEN AND CHILDREN A DAY. WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR 30 YEARS PROVIDING HOSPITALITY WITH DIGNITY AND LOVE TO WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THE OAK PARK COMMUNITY. EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING WE SURVEY NUTRITIOUS RECTUS, AND WE PROVIDE COUNSELING, CASE MANAGEMENT. WE HAVE A NUMBER OF ENRICHMENT CLASSES, ARTS AND CRAFTS PROGRAMS. Reporter: AND YOU ARE MAKING DO WITH A OUTDATED KITCHEN. I HAVE SHOWED YOU THESE DIFFERENT COUNTERS, ALL DIFFERENT LEVELS AND SIZES. WOULD IT NOT BE GREAT IF THEY HAD JUST ONE CONTINUOUS COUNTER, AND IF THEY DID NOT HAVE TO USE THE CUTTING BOARD FOR A TABLE. ARE YOU EXCITED? WE ARE EXTREMELY EXCITED AND SOLD GRATEFUL TO THE LEADERSHIP OF SACRAMENTO, AND THEY’VE CHOSEN US TO RECEIVE A GRANT TO GET THESE IMPROVEMENTS. Reporter: AND THAT WILL BRING US TO THE LEADERSHIP SACRAMENTO, AND WHAT THEY HOPE THE KITCHEN WILL LOOK LIKE. EVERY YEAR THAT THEY CAN ORGANIZATION, AND THIS YEAR YOU PICKED WELLSPRING. THEY BEEN IN THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND WE WANTED TO HELP THEM BRING IN THE A NEW KITCHEN FOR THE GAS TO COME IN HERE EVERY DAY, OVER 200. Reporter: OBVIOUSLY WE DON’T HAVE WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN YET BECAUSE THE BREAKFAST IS NOT SERVED UNTIL 7:30 AM, AND WE CANNOT REALLY SHOW EVERYONE IN HERE BECAUSE OF WHAT THE SITUATION MAYBE. WHAT IS THE REACTION AS THEY GET IN HERE IN, AND IN THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY? IT IS A HOME ENVIRONMENT, AND THEY DEPEND ON THIS, AND THEY COME IN HERE WITHOUT GUILT OR SHAME, AND JUST THE LOVED. Reporter: AND BY AUGUST 15, YOU NEED THIS, AND YOU’RE ABOUT HALFWAY THERE. WE ARE SHY $85,000, AND ANY DONATION BIG OR SMALL CAN HELP US TO REACH OUR $150,000 GOAL, AND YOU CAN MAKE A DONATION
