Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is an exterior home preservation service that offers painting, landscaping, weather stripping and minor repair services for homeowners in need. ABWK helps low-income homeowners reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. Eligible homeowners may be impacted by age, disability and family circumstances and are struggling to maintain the exterior of their homes. ABWK serves as a companion to the local Habitat for Humanity core building services, enabling them to serve more families and increase opportunities for volunteers and sponsors. Habitat, in cooperation with city manager John Palacio, has selected the partner families based on income, need and willingness to partner. A Brush with Kindness ensures that families live in safe and well-maintained homes. The program is designed to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community, and most importantly, help preserve affordable housing stock. We would love to have your help! The more volunteers we have, the less time it will take and the more houses we can paint! The volunteers will meet at 9 am at the Habitat for Humanity Warehouse (the old Mason Warehouse building behind Jack Lee’s law office on the north side of the square) on Monday, March 12th. Volunteers should wear old clothes because the jobs will include painting, sanding scraping and caulking. We’ll break at noon and start back at 1:00. Anyone who wants to volunteer should call Paul Branch at 258-4491.
