In April 2011 Talacris (Grifols) Biotherapeutics approached STNinJC to determine the interest in serving as a conduit,with funding from Talecris, to build ramps and perform small home repairs for the elderly and physically impaired. We enthusiastically accepted their proposal and with $13,200 in funding from Talecris, from April through June, 2011, 18 projects were completed. Projects were selected from an approved list, provided by the Council on Aging and the Johsnston County Department of Social Services. It is estimated that volunteers from STNinJC and local churches spent 712 man hours performing this work.
Under the leadership of our president, Royal Williams, this work continues. Following the conclusion of the Talacris initiative in June 2011, over 42 additional projects from Clayton to Kenly, Pine Level, Selma, and Smithfield, have been completed. Materials and supplies are provided with generous contributions from our members, churches, other individuals and recipients.
