Sweet Sixteen wish fulfilled with three generations of Fuller women on job site

When Jacksonville, Florida’s Sophie Luedi — Millard Fuller’s oldest granddaughter — began looking for ways to celebrate turning 16 years old, she found the typical Sweet Sixteen parties to be a little unfulfilling. She wanted to celebrate the milestone in a different way, a meaningful way. The answer came in the form of a Fuller Center for Housing job site — Toolie’s Birthday Blitz Build in Americus, Georgia — where the Jacksonville, Florida, resident was able to celebrate by volunteering with her grandmother Linda Fuller Degelmann, mother Georgia Fuller Luedi, sister Jasmine and friend Aracely Medina. Each of them talks about this experience in the video below. Meanwhile, if you would like to honor Sophie’s birthday with a donation to the grass-roots affordable housing ministry founded by her grandparents, please click here.
