Thank you Danville House of Hope, and for the wonderful work your organization is doing for this community! #cfdrr #danvilleva #givewhereyouliveConstruction update! The old and (really) tired flooring is gone, and the new is on the way. We are very excited for this particular part of our renovation because it will be easier to keep the shelter clean for our guests! In honor of #CommunityFoundationWeek, we are very thankful to the The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region for making this new flooring possible. Thank you for your support! See MoreSee Less
