USA - Gresham House
The JD Sheth Foundation is honored to accept a proposal to complete the construction of the Gresham House in Evansville, IN. This house was donated by the City of Evansville to John B Gresham's mother after he was killed in World War I. He was the first to be killed and he happened to be from Evansville. The house had its 100th anniversary at the end of last year and was donated to be used for veterans transitional housing. Our foundation is providing the windows for safety measures in the areas where the veterans will be residing. With the help of The Home Depot, Toyota, and several other businesses, we are now able to provide local homeless veterans with housing and a real chance at a positive future through this reconstructed house. We will be having a fundraiser on May 12, from 3-7pm, at Kevin's Backstage to support this project. Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for veterans; children are free. If you would like to sponsor a veteran to attend for free it is $15 and that will include 1 adult and 1 veteran. Included in your ticket price will be 3 raffle tickets for prize packages worth no less than $125. Beer Garden, Live Remotes from WSTO and WIKY, food truck, EFD Fire Truck, bounce house, and Live Music inside... Come out and support our veterans! Email us for advance tickets here.
India Water Filtration
After traveling to south India, The JD Sheth Foundation decided to fund a water filtration system for the St. Joseph's Convent School in Champion Reef, Kolar Gold Fields, India. After going there and meeting the 100 teachers and 2700 children, we learned that they have a water source for the children, but the water contains 700% more sodium than the human body should consume. Because many of these children don't have running water at home, they go to school and drink this water that is doing more damage than good. With the help of the Andrew Pepper Foundation, we are working towards funding a filtration system for this school to purify the water. The JD Sheth Foundation will be traveling to South India in the summer of 2018 to follow up with this project for clean, drinkable water for these children.
Guatemala Housing Project
During June 17-23 and June 24-30, the JD Sheth Foundation will be leading the Dream Team IV, consisting of 39 individuals from all over the United States and the world, to Guatemala to build 7 homes for chosen disabled families. We will be partnering with Constru Casa again to make this happen. We will not only be building a foundation for life for these families, but also supplying them with much needed items for their homes including a water filtration system and stove. This project is closed to volunteers at this time. For further info on our 2019 build, please email us through our foundation email.
Manila Feeding House
The Philippines is a country which gets a tremendous amount of rain and monsoons annually. The JD Sheth Foundation will be funding and building a feeding center which will provide a warm and dry shelter to all the families who currently use tents to escape the weather. Airline Ambassadors International and other private sponsors provide several hot meals a week for these families and continuously follow up with them several times a year. We are honored to promote the health and well being of these families through this project. We will be implementing this project in the Summer 2018 and completion will be October 2018.
