On Nov. 11th the Silver-star Chapter partnered with Buckner International. Since 1879 Buckner International has been transforming lives by: providing foster care for vulnerable children, providing preventative care for at risk families and protecting families from disintegration by providing housing, support and financial assistance so single mothers can complete their higher education.Their Ultimate gift was a 2 fold assignment this year requiring them to be on 2 campuses. During their morning shift they did inside painting of stair railings and doors. Outside they did doors, railings and trim work to liven up the front of the buildings. They also freshened up the names of the buildings on the signs out front. Their afternoon shift at the second location required them to get the campus ready inside and out for the holiday season by putting up Christmas trees and decorating them, hanging garland on the light poles and placing shrub lights. Decorating was made extra special this year with the letters, Faith, Hope and Love which were made by one of their member's father Ed Bellow and painted by the chapter. Buckner liked them so much they are going to keep them up year round. As always Ultimate Gift is the day when we all work together to build that bond that makes YMSL such a great experience and realizing how we can impact our communities.

On Nov. 11th the Silver-star Chapter partnered with Buckner International. Since 1879 Buckner International has been transforming lives by: providing foster care for vulnerable children, providing preventative care for at risk families and protecting families from disintegration by providing housing, support and financial assistance so single mothers can complete their higher education.Their Ultimate gift was a 2 fold assignment this year requiring them to be on 2 campuses. During their morning shift they did inside painting of stair railings and doors. Outside they did doors, railings and trim work to liven up the front of the buildings. They also freshened up the names of the buildings on the signs out front. Their afternoon shift at the second location required them to get the campus ready inside and out for the holiday season by putting up Christmas trees and decorating them, hanging garland on the light poles and placing shrub lights. Decorating was made extra special this year with the letters, Faith, Hope and Love which were made by one of their member's father Ed Bellow and painted by the chapter. Buckner liked them so much they are going to keep them up year round. As always Ultimate Gift is the day when we all work together to build that bond that makes YMSL such a great experience and realizing how we can impact our communities.
