Giving Tuesday 2020 Update

Dear Friends of the Bulgarian Community,

As we are nearing the end of our first phase of construction, we’d like to provide an update on the building progress. The majority of construction of the new classrooms has been completed, and the great hall upstairs has received a much needed face lift. A large group of volunteers came in over the weekend (masked and socially distanced of course) and took care of much of the interior painting. A big thank you to all who participated!

So long as all remains on schedule, construction should be complete, and the building ready for use by the middle of this month. We are coming up with a game plan to allow for COVID compliant use of the space. We are hoping to invite the community to visit in small groups once we get the town’s final approval on the construction.

During this holiday season, please keep our realized dream of a home for the Bulgarian community alive and strong. As most of our planned events and fundraising activites ground to a halt due to COVID restrictions, now more than ever, we are in need of community support and donations. Please click on the following link to donate directly:

Wishing all an enjoyable holiday season!
