On September 29th, we partnered with volunteers from GLS Companies to make repairs for a South Minneapolis homeowner named Roma. Roma has lived in her home for her entire life and takes great pride in the fact that this home has been in her family for over 150 years. She worked as a labor and delivery nurse at Riverside Hospital until she retired. She spends her time cooking meals for her family and sewing Raggedy Ann dolls for her grandchildren.
Roma would like to continue living independently in her home for as long as possible, but needed some repairs, and safety and accessibility modifications to make that possible. Volunteers from GLS made several repairs, including tearing down an old and dangerous shed, and installing a new shed; replacing a broken sidewalk with new sidewalk pavers; installing a handrail and grab bars; installing gutters; fixing a leak in the roof of a second floor deck; installing an awning; and performing yardwork.
This is the second year in a row that we have partnered with GLS Companies and our third collaborative project with them. Thanks to everyone who came out to help Roma!
