A Note from our Founder
My name is Michael Vinci. In 2012, when I was 19 years old, my father passed away after a long struggle with cancer and left me his business, Guilio Vinci Contractors. My father’s legacy was one of excellence in his craft and unmovable faith. In his last years on earth, he not only taught me the skills of carpentry and building, but also the importance of doing for others. Out of these core beliefs, the dream and mission of 127 Project was born.
The name 127 Project is based on a Bible verse found in James 1:27, which states, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.”
That is exactly what I aim to do through 127 Project: use my craft to help single mothers, widows, and anyone else who cannot afford necessary repairs to their home. Starting 127 Project as a 501c3 nonprofit separate from my business will allow me to go beyond just donating odd jobs and handyman work, and expand into full home improvement jobs for those in need.
