3/9/13: Volunteers to the rescue!

3/9/13: Volunteers to the rescue!

The first week of March came in strong and so did our Habitat volunteers. These dedicated individuals answered our online call for help. The cold and rain the night before did not scare our volunteers away and in fact most of them contacted us to make sure we were still on to paint.

The volunteers arrived bright and early to paint Ginger and Ron’s mobile home at Il Sorrento Mobile Home Park. The exterior of the home was so stained that even pressure washing the home did not remove the discoloring. This did not discourage our volunteers as they wasted no time setting up for the paint day and taping off areas.  Extension poles and large rollers were the tools of the day because the home had 3 sides with high peaks and large plank siding. Once the weather started warming up, the group moved to painting trim and 8 large shutters.

A lot of volunteers on this day were local active military and it was wonderful hearing their stories. Habitat homeowner Diana and soon to be homeowner Janet join us as well.

Ginger and Ron were so appreciative of the group’s hard work that they treated everyone to cold Gatorade and two trays of cookies.  The couple was amazed at how fast and how well their home was painted. Thank you Habitat volunteers for giving up your Saturday. We couldn’t have done it without you.
