Project Mend-a-House is instrumental in helping low income families (especially the elderly) with home repairs that they may not otherwise be able to do. I am proud to be a Board Member for this organization because I have have heard so many stories about the help they offer. Our most recent project is also one of our most ambitious - helping a young man by adding a bathroom to the main floor of his home. Because he is confined by a wheelchair, he is unable to get the second floor bathroom and this new addition will enable him to get a shower instead of the sponge baths he now receives. My interest in serving on the Board came from reviewing a Project Mend-a-House application for an award. The handwritten letters from several of the elderly served by Project Mend-a-House were so touching they made me cry to realize how much I have and how little so many others have. I decided I needed to volunteer my time to help keep making a difference in those lives.
