How We Will Allocate Funds Raised:
The commercial real estate property we are pursuing to secure for our charity work is 2,700 square feet, with the possibility for us to take possession of an additional 2,000 square feet in the near future if needed for production of our Soaps4hope.
This property is a former bank. It was completely renovated by a former restaurant owner, who gutted it out and installed two commercial kitchen sinks. Perfect for our soap making!!!
Currently the owner is asking for $10 per square foot for the commercial property. This would be $2,700 a month for us to rent this commercial space, however, if we pay him the cash up front, we can secure the 24 month lease at $1,800 per month.
It is our intentions to purchase this building from the owner who is currently asking for $500,000 for the entire structure. It is a 'mini' plaza, facilitating three separate units. Only one is currently occupied. We plan to continue fundraising to offer the owner $250,000 cash. God willing.
