The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. has granted Patuxent Habitat for Humanity funding to help us with our Veterans Critical Home Repair Program. Since receiving these funds PHFH has completed seven repairs for our local veterans and has three more repairs scheduled before the end of 2018. In the past two weeks we replaced a roof and gutters plus had termite treatment performed for WWII Army Veteran Mr. George Somerville of Leonardtown. Also completed was the roof and gutter replacement for Marine Veteran, Mr. Bryan Williams of Lusby. These repairs were done in partnership with Jerry Lewis Roofing Company, Rhodes Seamless Gutters and Angel Systems, Inc. These local veterans are now living in the home they love with the comfortable conditions that we all deserve!
The Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Veteran Critical Repair Program is designed to repair homes for military veterans and their families. The program will assist with repairs identified in Habitat’s Critical Home Repair guidelines that may vary from roof repair and structural wall repairs to installing wheel chair ramps and remodeling bathrooms to be easily used by veterans with disabilities. If you would like to donate or volunteer for veteran programs please call Laurie at 301-863-6227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
