The Grand Rapids Parks Department has been approved by the City of Grand Rapids for a budget of $125,000 towards the park building renovations. However, the total expected project costs may require up to $500,000 in order to update the building to code, its HVAC, AC/heat, and water systems, outdoor patio seating area, basement and stairwell, and main floor cafe space.
While [HAS HEART] and the Parks Department will work together to pursue grant opportunities, [HAS HEART] is also requesting support from the community to help us build an inviting space for all members of our community to meet and share a cup of coffee or tea.
Since this coffee shop will be built for the community, we want it to also be built by the community. There will be countless ways and opportunities to support this new form of a community center.
As the build plans continue to be developed, you can start by helping [HAS HEART] purchase the coffee shop equipment required to serve patrons their freshly brewed cup of Madcap coffee. Click the products below to donate the amount needed to purchase the equipment. Some items will be available to be dedicated to a Veteran you admire and love so that their memory and legacy will continue to live on and serve their community and country.
*The needed equipment listed below will be available to gift to [HAS HEART] beginning June 25, 2020. For questions, comments, or ideas, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
