Wrappin’ It Up: City Project 2014
“Wrappin’ It Up: City Project 2014”
Join us this Saturday and next and help us finish what we started!!
LINDA’S HOME: PHASE 2
Meet Linda. Linda is 65 years old and living alone on Social Security. Two years ago she was living in Alaska and had to file bankruptcy. Her friend here in Colorado was having difficulty caring for her sick husband and needed help, so Linda decided to pack up and make a new start here.
This is Linda’s friend Laurel.
Linda purchased a mobile home without seeing it in person, and when she arrived, realized this home would have to be gutted. Since then, a year and a half ago, she has been slowly chipping away at this daunting project. What little money she had has been put into materials, and she has been doing most of the work herself. This work continues, but the pace has slowed due to medical issues, including two shoulder surgeries.
Restoration Now offered to step in and help Linda make her home livable back in March. We have been working with Linda doing framing, insulation, drywall, tile, painting, trim, electrical, sealing leaks in the roof and windows, and much more. This year, Linda’s home was the primary location for our annual City Project volunteer week. Here are a few things we did together, as a community.
There was lots of painting…
Trim Installation and Sanding…
A few of our College RUF Crew made it out, and lots of laughs were shared over lunches provided by our volunteers…
There was much caulking to be done…
|And last but not least, some carpet and electric work. Thank you ADVANCED INTERIORS for donating professional services and materials to install the carpet!|
City Project was a huge success this year. We had more than 25 volunteers throughout the week and made so much progress! Thanks to all who came out and helped!!
We will continue work this weekend and next on Linda’s house and hope to wrap it up. Please come out and join us!
Last but not least, don’t think the work stops with Linda… MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the second and third weekend of September, September 14 and 21 when we get to help Autumn! We’ll be doing gutters, tile, caulking, flooring (laminate), electric work, and more, and WE NEED YOU! Until then, stay tuned, and keep loving others.
