Volunteers in Action
The October Outdoor Work Party
had over one hundred volunteers come out to pull weeds, lay bark, dead-head flowers and more. This monthly event helps keep the grounds of the House looking its best. A special thank you to volunteer coordinators Vince Lee, Gesa Santos and Christina Rice for all of their help.
Mike Norton and his crew
gave up a Saturday to come out and paint the entire exterior of Building 400 with paint donated by Benjamin Moore. It is absolutely amazing what a fresh coat of paint will do for a building - especially when it is put on by people who do their job so well.
Associated Builders and Contractors
are working their magic once again this year. Under the expert leadership of James Garcia, they re-painted two kitchens, one of the duplex apartments, all of the bedrooms in building 400 and one office. With dedicated volunteers working so hard, our families can be comfortable in a clean room in good repair. And, the painters aren't done - they will be coming out again next month.
5th Graders from St. Peter's Lutheran Church
came out after last month's stormy weather and helped clean up our grounds. They did odd jobs around the House after picking up dead branches and garbage, which filled up an entire parking space with debris!
We also want to recognize Wayne Reuter of Tren Set Homes
who came out and repaired the lobby desk and two utility doors. We truly appreciate the time and energy he has contributed to helping us out with odd projects around the House.
