Yesterday WUMCRC, Rebuilding Together St. Louis and Home Depot collaborated on a home repair on the 4500 block of Chouteau. Resident Julie Glenn was the recipient of a special day of service from Home Depot employees and through it received a rebuilt front porch, needed improvements on her bathroom shower, and replaced roof tiles.
Today we got a chance to talk to Julie about her experience…
“I can’t begin to express the impact that these improvements will have on my life. It was extremely stressful tying to take a shower with trash bags holding up the wall, wondering if this would be the last time it could be used. And finally we won’t have to worry about the front porch caving in every time we walk up the stairs. It is a fabulous blessing to the community to have such a large place like Washington University Medical Center show care for the neighborhoods surrounding it and continue their commitment to it’s residents. I was so thankful yesterday and I could start all over again today thanking everyone that helped.”
This event, which Fox 2 covered yesterday, is just a precursor to the Rebuilding Day blitz that will take place throughout Forest Park Southeast in April.
