“We understand the importance of teaching young people the ability to be self-sufficient,” said Mitch Hires, president of Construction Resources. “We are pleased that we could contribute to such a worthy cause.”

Construction Resources, Inc., Atlanta’s leading supplier of kitchen and bath supplies understands the importance of giving back to the community which is why they are pleased to partner with the Artisan Group to provide the United Methodist Children’s Home Teaching Kitchen with new Artisan Stone Collection granite countertops, as well as sinks and faucets. The new countertops were donated by the Artisan Group and fabricated and installed by Atlanta Kitchen.

The United Methodist Children’s Home Teaching Kitchen, located in Decatur, was created in the 1970’s and is devoted to fostering, education and developing essential life skills to underprivileged children.

“We understand the importance of teaching young people the ability to be self-sufficient,” said Mitch Hires, president of Construction Resources. “We are pleased that we could contribute to such a worthy cause.”

Construction is now underway at the facility thanks to contributions from Construction Resources and other metro-Atlanta companies. Once the kitchen renovation is complete, volunteers and regular UMCH staff will coordinate and facilitate cooking sessions for children age 11 to 18 that are enrolled at UMCH.

“The kitchen renovation is an important project for the home because it will ultimately provide another outlet for volunteers and staff to teach young individuals how to become self-sustaining,” said Kyle Boyd, a project manager with WicksteadWorks, one of Atlanta’s leading remodeling companies that has donated its time to do the renovation work on the kitchen. “A new kitchen renovation will excite the children and help give them a positive mindset toward achieving essential life skills through cooking. We are very grateful for Construction Resources donations.”

The UMCH Teaching Kitchen is still accepting monetary donations and is in need of two electric ranges and a refrigerator. To make a donation, contact David Brimanson at dbrimanson(at)wicksteadworks(dot)com. To learn more about the United Methodist Children’s Home, please visit
