On Thursday, October 11th, we partnered with 50 volunteers from Honeywell and the Robbinsdale Cooper High School football team to make repairs to the home of a 57-year-old Air Force veteran named William and his wife, Sharon. William and Sharon have taken good care of their modest home, but it is prone to flooding. William lost his job as a painter last year and wasn’t able to flood-proof the home on his own. The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans referred William and Sharon to Rebuilding Together Twin Cities for help. Volunteers created a French drain, installed a new paver sidewalk, repaired the deck and installed a new basement ceiling. They also painted the living room, dining room, basement and kitchen cupboards and power-washed the exterior of the home.
This project marks the 17th completed locally through Rebuilding Together Twin Cities’ partnership with Honeywell. Thank you to Honeywell and Robbinsdale Cooper High School for your continued commitment to helping homeowners in need in our community!
