1/4/13: March JPA Does an Amazing Paint Job

1/4/13: March JPA Does an Amazing Paint Job

A huge shout out to the team from March JPA for coming out last Friday afternoon to makeover the mobile home belonging to Leslie and Linda in Santiago Estates Mobile Home Park in Moreno Valley. What a crew! They all showed up together at noon, after making short work of pizza at the office, and hit the ground running. In about three hours the place was totally transformed. Nice way to end the week and hit the weekend feeling good. The team had a great time with some good natured teasing, a little competition and some good tunes, including some great sounds from the Zac Brown band!

Habitat volunteers had already put in several long days of work on this one including an entire day of pruning, weeding and clean up in the yard. There were also a couple of days of work tearing out rotted siding and trim and replacing it with new wood. In fact, we will still have at least one more day doing just a little more repair on the skirting in the front as well as the siding and trim on the shed. The Jurupa Valley High School kids will come back and do one final day of painting those repairs as well as the lattice work on the porch.

Even with a little work left to complete, this place looks amazingly different with the paint job completed. This isn’t the first rodeo for the team from March JPA and hopefully it isn’t the last. They are a pleasure to work with and are welcome back anytime. Although, we may have to work on finding some bigger challenges to keep them busy!

Special thanks to Carey for organizing the project day and to Lori for supporting the team in coming together to make a difference in the community. Les and Linda, (and the dogs) thank you so much.
