88 year old Carolyn spent the day at her neighbors' house while busy volunteers from Seattle City Light and McKinstry worked to improve her home. At the end of the day they set up a small ribbon cutting ceremony and ate cake to celebrate all that was achieved! Carolyn was overwhelmed with emotion as she walked through her home, often having to take a break to shed tears of happiness. She said over and over again to the volunteers, "Thank you, thank you, thank you. You all have made it possible for me to stay in my home!"
Well done, volunteers!
