Insufficient StorageAs our number of Indian guests increase at Sri Somesvara Temple, our cooking facilities become more and more insufficient. We use a combination of slow cookers, woks, rice cookers, and other plug-in devices to do the cooking. We have no stove-top, no burners at all.

Small SinkThere is also insufficient storage.

Clean up is just as difficult, with one little hand-wash sink being used to clean very big pots and pans.

We must remodel and bring the kitchen up to standard. To do the job properly will take $29,261 in equipment and our contractor estimates $30,000 in labor and installation costs. We estimate taxes and shipping at $5000 for a total of approximately $64,261.

So we can be ready by July (the summer busy season), please contribute now!

Since there is a donor who will match donations, any donation amount is helpful.
