Desert Star Construction understands the importance of family, community and their roles in building a solid life foundation. As such, we welcomed the opportunity to manage a major kitchen renovation for the Phoenix Dream Center (PDC), an organization that provides basic needs for at-risk youth, homeless and needy families. Thanks to donations and more than 1,600 hours of time from Team DSC®, trade contractors and other volunteers, PDC’s kitchen was upgraded from 1,200 square feet into a 4,000-square-foot, high output meal facility. It increased capacity from 5,000 to 9,000 meals per week and doubled the space for its on-site job-training program. Food storage was also increased from a one- to a five-day storage capacity, which reduced trips to off site storage facilities and freed much needed space for other outreach programs.
