Albany non-profit has extensive flood damage
An Albany non-profit that looks to keep kids that have been removed from abusive homes out of the foster care system has suffered catastrophic damage after its offices were flooded Monday.
Employees of Things of My Very Own arrived for work Tuesday morning to find heavy rainfall had overwhelmed the buildings drainage outlets overnight.
Now the organization is starting their fundraising efforts to help cover the costs of extensive repairs.
Things of my very own will need to dry out and excavate the walls, replace the drywall, install new floors as well as replace everything they can’t salvage.
Employees have been picking up corporate donations from all across the city using a rented U-Haul.
The staff is determined not to let down any family that’s in crisis and in need of services.
Things of My Very Own is asking the public to help them continue to serve families in the Capital Region by making any monetary donation no matter how small to help with restoration costs.
