Christmas In October is the biggest volunteering event of the year at BHC RHODES. But this year was extra special thanks to our friends at PARIC Corporation. Our volunteers teamed up to help one local family with some much needed home repairs.
26 volunteers participated this year and worked a total of 156 hours. Over the course of the day the volunteers were able to complete the following repairs:
- Demo and rebuild of the front stairs
- Demo and rebuild of the interior basement stairs
- 5 basement lights rewired and installed
- Cellar door remounted and sealed
- Gutters reset and sealed
- Downspouts redirected to drain away from the house
- 3 windows winterized
- Window A/C unit secured and winterized
- 4 roses planted and mulched along the front of the house
- Lawn mowed and trimmed
- Alleyway beside the house cleaned out
- Front door painted
Christmas In October is organized by the BHC RHODES BLU Crew. This event could not be possible without the help and consideration of the volunteers. BHC RHODES would like to thank all of the team leads, to those who brought their expertise to help us perform quality work, to those who brought tools to share and those who showed up ready to pitch in wherever they could.
