Help!! Help!!

This building is 137' long, and has three pipes running the length of the building. I quit counting at 100 breaks. We are having to replace all the pipes. that run to the upper half of the building.
I am saving the pipes to turn in to cash to help pay for the repairs, The Inn is strapped for cash and aren't sure how they are going to pay for it. The work has to be done there are to many people that rely on this homeless shelter in this weather to keep them warm.

This is a few of the breaks The heat tape you see here failed, which is what caused the problem in the first place. I have been coming in and working on this and heaters and locks for a week now and will be heading back today to finish removing the last of the pipes. The weather has been reeking havoc on the buildings.

I am cutting each side of the places where they run to bathrooms, while all this is going on they are having to share the restrooms down stairs, They are able to sleep in the rooms and stay warm. They need help to pay for this repair. And I am asking you my fellow bloggers to step up to the plate for me. I would not ask for this for me, but the Inn provides a need service to the community. I worked for the Inn for over 4 years and was laid off when they lost there funding. But when something goes wrong they know they can call me and I will be there to help. They have been helping people starting in 1999. A $5 donation will buy 1 fitting for the building, there are 11 rooms and 5 fittings to a room. Please help if you can. send checks to the Bethlehem Inn 3705 N. hwy 97 Bend Oregon 97701. place a note in and let them know your a blogger please thanks and MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
