On September 23rd, we hosted 10 volunteers to provide repairs for two homeowners in need in Windom for our 2023 Cottonwood County Rebuilding Day!
We supported Joette’s independence and mobility in her home by installing safety grab bars, rebuilding her front porch handrail and steps, adding carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, and installing a new screen door for the 65-year-old. We also helped Ray, who is 78 years old and struggles with back pain, by installing flooring, moving his laundry room to the main floor for easier access, cleaning up his yard, and improving his deck.
We are very grateful to our volunteers and also to our sponsors, including the Southwest Initiative Foundation, Odell Wind Farm, Thrivent and HyVee.
Joette said of our work, “It feels wonderful that there are so many caring people out there that’ll come and help out a person. They’re doing wonderful, I can’t thank them enough.”
