Power Auto Media and Others Race to Make an Impact in Moreno Valley

Power Auto Media, along with local volunteers helped kick start July by transforming one family’s home in a few short hours. After Javier and his family moved to Moreno Valley, they spent a considerable amount of time and money making repairs to their home. However, without the time or money, Javier was unable to put the finishing touches on the repairs and to repaint his home. Habitat for Humanity Riverside and a group of 23 hard-working volunteers spent the morning of July 1st helping Javier revitalize his home, adding a beautiful new coat of paint to its exterior.

The volunteers worked side by side, eager to do the best job they could and avoid the heat. “I’m painting the home as if it were my own.” said a first-time volunteer. By 11:00 am the temperature had nearly reached 90 degrees, however the volunteers continued to work through the hot weather to complete the home on time, taking frequent breaks to hydrate. Power Auto Media graciously supplied the volunteers with sports drinks and other beverages to stay cool. With groups around the home working on separate areas, the volunteers maximized their productivity and by noon the home was completed.

For many, it was their first time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Riverside. “It may be hot, but this morning was worth the sweat and hard-work. To see how much the family’s home changed just from a new coat of paint – it’s amazing. I’ll definitely be doing this again.” exclaimed one volunteer from Power Auto Media. After the home was completed, one of the family members expressed their gratitude saying, “I can’t believe how much better it looks. It’s amazing. We put so much of our resources into the home. I can’t thank everyone enough.” With the help of the volunteers, Javier and his family can now enjoy a beautifully repainted home. Our thanks go out to Power Auto Media and the local volunteers who donated their time that morning for Javier and his family.
