On the last day of April, 50 members of Floris enjoyed the beautiful sunshine to help a needy person in Reston during our annual Rebuilding Together ministry. Rebuilding Together is a nationwide home “revitalization” organization that fixed up the homes of more than 4000 families across the country.
With excellent teamwork, we were able to accomplish/install the following: stair-lift, 3 comfort height toilets, 5 grab bars, kitchen faucet, kitchen light replacement, outside light switch, electrical plug, storm door handle, front door stain/sealing, front walkway “leveled”, garage door opener adjustment, fence latch, deck railings (2), deck steps attached, deck board replaced, deck lattice installed, deck power-washed/sealed, holes patched, indoor paint 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, hallways(2), stairwell & family room; outdoor window trim replacement, garage door molding replacements (4 bottom pieces), front exterior trim painted, gutters cleaned, landscaping bushes/trees pruned (many), yard mowed, yard junk/debris removed, 4 truckloads of junk/yard waste taken to landfill, hospitality (snacks/drinks/ home baked sweet rolls), flowers planted, truck rented, everything cleaned up and 1 stubborn stump removed.
It was very rewarding to hear the heartfelt thank you’s from the elderly homeowner and her daughter. They were delighted at all we were able to finish. Many of these changes will help them stay in the house despite their disabilities. Helping a member of our community was extremely rewarding for everyone that participated in the kickoff event for Floris’ Big Serve.
