Kennewick veteran's home repaired in service project

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The home of a Kennewick veteran is in much better shape after two teams of volunteers swarmed to repair and restore it Saturday morning.

Rebuilding Mid-Columbia teamed up with volunteers from Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS).

They upgraded windows, repaired doors and installed pavers along an outside path.

They also upgraded the furnace and floor of the family room in David Wright's home.

Wright was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease last year and said today's project really means a lot to him,

"You know they do more than just repair and replace doors and windows. They help give people hope again. I've got Parkinson's, I've had it for two years, and there's things I just cant do anymore because of the illness. So now they're able to get things done for me that I just couldn't do."

Rebuilding Mid-Columbia pays for all the improvements at no cost to homeowners.

They're always looking for more volunteers and sponsors. If you're interested in helping with their next project, visit here.
