Review for Rutherford Housing Partnership Inc, Rutherfordton, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dear GuideStar USA,
My name is Dorothy Daniel and I turned 90 years old Christmas day of 2010. I live alone and, other than some minor ailments that come with age, I’ve been very blessed healthwise, and for that I am thankful.
Last year I began noticing leak spots on the ceiling of three rooms in my house. I found a few of my shingles in my yard that had blown off my roof and, after having someone check the roof, I was told that I needed new shingles on the whole roof. After learning about Rutherford Housing Partnership, I applied for the grant to roof my house and was approved. I was able to pay for the shingles but RHP provided the labor free of charge making this affordable to me.
Several skilled volunteers sacrificed their time and labor for four different days to do this work. Everyone who had a part in this project was extremely kind and thoughtful. They ordered my shingles, removed the old ones, repaired a couple of rotten boards, put the new shingles on and did an excellent yard clean-up. Their work was very professional. They all worked very hard and wasted no time in getting this job done. It was very well organized.
I have been very pleased with the results and will always be grateful for their sacrifice and for this program that has helped many other people like me.
This service is greatly needed in our county and I am very pleased to write this review for such a worthy cause.
Sincerely,
Dorothy C. Daniel
