Fund-A-Need 2023: Kitchen Renovation

This year’s Fund-A-Need is for a much-needed BCHS cafeteria kitchen upgrade. We will be replacing several pieces of equipment that are past their useful life and now requiring frequent maintenance. We will also be replacing cabinetry and installing an epoxy floor.

All improvements are being made to maximize functionality, quality of the food product, and hygiene.

The cost of the renovation is estimated at $120,000, and our fund-raising goal this year was $50,000. Thanks to you, we reached that goal! But there is more to do and you can still help! Click the button below to donate.
