This week has been a big step for Nies Homes as we hosted the ground breaking ceremony to officially kick off Kansas’ first St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house. It’s been many long months of planning. And we are honored to have been chosen to build this custom home to show our support for the doctors and scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as they find cures for childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases.
We can’t put into words the feelings we had as we watched the ground break amid the cheers and whistles from our trade partners and vendors. Being a part of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway and supporting St. Jude has become life-changing for all of us. And it wouldn’t be possible without the support from the the Cities of Derby and Wichita plus the outpouring of support from our trade partners, subcontractors and vendors. For that we are truly thankful.
The October 27 ground breaking was an early one, with coverage starting at 5 a.m. on KSN. If you missed the ceremony or simply want to watch the excitement again, click [here].
We also have the honor of introducing Bella. Bella and her entire family is a true inspiration. And her continuous smile warms our hearts. To hear her story and learn more about the amazing care St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for each of its patients, please click [here].
