Greenpoint Technologies to repair home of veteran family in Rainier Valley

On Saturday, April 26, more than 80 volunteers will restore the home of Ruth in Rainier Valley. Ruth's husband Vernon, an Air Force Veteran, passed away recently and since then she has had a hard time keeping up with their home. Ruth has been battling diabetes, high blood pressure, and asthma for quite some time which makes it hard for her to do any of the work on her own. She and Vernon used to love riding motorcycles together, listening to jazz and blues in Seattle, spending time with their kids, and making pear-wine with fruit from the tree in their yard.

This project will be completed by volunteers from Greenpoint Technologies, a Kirkland-based company that provides luxury interiors for private jets. Greenpoint Technologies has served as one of our top sponsors for the past 5 years and we are so happy to have them back on board once again!

Greenpoint Volunteers - Spring Rebuilding Day 2014

Volunteers will be installing all new kitchen appliances, replacing broken windows, clearing clutter from her basement and first floor, repairing drywall around the front and back entrance ways, fixing rotting molding and trim, installing new light fixtures, and placing grab bars in her bathroom. Ruth has been beyond excited about the upcoming project. During some recent prep work days, Ruth said she couldn't believe the transformation that had already taken place. She counts her self as blessed to be chosen to be a part of Spring Rebuilding Day this year.

There will be many more photos from this project featured in the blog and on our Facebook page, so keep an eye out for pictures of this amazing transformation for both Ruth and her home!
