Fall Appeal 2018 - Kitchen
The kitchen needs some love.
EACH YEAR THE KITCHEN SERVES OVER 240,000 MEALS AND, PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY, EVERY SUMMER OUR KITCHEN MAKES OVER 10,000 DONUTS!
It is hard to overstate the impact and blessing our kitchen and dining hall have on guests at Mount Hermon.
We all share great memories from the times we’ve spent around the dining hall tables with our friends and family, never having to worry about any part of meal prep or clean up.
But the kitchen and dining hall need a major upgrade, one that will allow us to serve millions more meals for decades to come. There are structural and equipment needs that we must address. Some of the most pressing ones are:
- Four new giant steam kettles:
If you enjoy pasta, corn on the cob, or ribs, these are VERY important
- A new tilt-skillet:
This is where we brown meat, sauté veggies, stir-fry, and more
- New flooring and sub-floor:
Leaky pipes, water lines and heavy usage have degraded the structural integrity
- Repairs to our loading dock:
Tree roots have damaged the concrete where large trucks deliver the food, making unloading extremely difficult and sometimes dangerous
The cost for the new equipment and repairs is about $200,000. Our hope is to finish the majority of the work during the month of September so we can move strongly into our fall Guest Group and Christmas season. We need your help. Will you prayerfully consider a gift to renew our kitchen?
Thank you in advance for your sincere consideration and support!
For King and Kingdom,
Vice President of Advancement
P.S. Receiving your gift by October 5 will bless us immensely, ensuring we are able to finish all the necessary projects in time for our busy fall season!
