The Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country has a program called A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) that is looking to improve the lives of local residents.
The program assists members of the community by doing minor exterior repairs to their homes in exchange for a low monthly payment to give back what was used to improve the home.
Recently, Wellington resident Gordon Tubbs contacted Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country and requested assistance on his home. He had recently moved into the house and discovered that it was in need of a new coat of paint as well as some new roof boards. The idea that ABWK has behind its program is to focus on completing repair projects such as this one to prevent future problems that could be more serious.
The rotting roof boards and door trim were replaced. The house was also primed and painted. Tubbs volunteered nearly twenty hours to the project. ABWK also gladly welcomed the assistance of some volunteers during the three work days. Participating parties included Washington Federal of Price, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 4th Ward in Wellington and the Boys & Girls Club of Carbon County.
Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country would like to thank the volunteers as well as the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, AmeriCorps, Wells Fargo, Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, Utah Association of Realtors, Union Pacific Foundation and Sutherlands of Price for their support.
“Without the support from these sponsors and donations from local residents and vendors, HFHCC would not be able to help people in need of repairs, like Gordon,” stated a HFHCC representative.
