$20,000 to Rebuild 3 Homes in Warner Robins | News
20 pairs of hands, $20,000, and one lucky homeowner.
"It is getting totally remodeled and I thank God for it," says Lena Anderson who lives on Dunbar Road.
Wells Fargo presented the big prize to Rebuilding Together Warner Robins. That money will be used on three home projects, including Anderson's house.
"The paint was coming off and there were holes in some of the places in the floor. I had a little fire in my washroom that was all messed up," says Anderson.
"She needed some extensive paint work on the inside and outside. She needed some repairs on her bathroom; front and back doors needed some replacing," says Rebuilding Together Project Manager Joanne Alford-Robinette.
The handy helpers scraped off layers of the old and lathered on a new coat of paint.
These volunteers started working at 9 a.m and will call it a day around 5 p.m. The house will be completed in about two weeks after they fix the heat and the air.
Anderson has lived in this house on Dunbar Rd. for 12 years. She's most excited about the new additions to her bathroom.
"It's a better mold, the handicap one. So I can sit there and enjoy myself," Anderson says with a laugh.
Anderson's low income and disability qualifies her home for a makeover.
"We work on anywhere from 20-30 houses a year. We've completed about 890 homes," says Alford-Robinette.
