Appreciative of the new roof volunteers at our community partner in West Virginia built for them, Mr. and Mrs. Price, seniors in dire need of a new roof, presented volunteers with the following poem written by Mrs. Price.

 

Fixing Our Roof

Some people go on big vacations

To have so much summer fun,

But here for us it’s a joy to get work done.

Americans Helping Americans®

People helping people, help people.
