Immediately the Silent Few obviously said yes, reached out to Cape Cod Brothers where Brother B.A.S.E spoke with his boss at Shepley Wood and had over 900$ worth of materials donated, additionally the Fairhaven building inspector Mr Wayne Fostin, waived all permit fees. So what would have cost well over $1,000 was given for free. Many members under the guidance of Pepere', and Chapter P "Bino" contributed time to get this project finished to the point where Brother "Crumbz" sister was allowed to return home.
