Cedar Valley Exteriors Sponsors Habitat for Humanity Service Project

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Habitat for Humanity MNStaff from Cedar Valley Exteriors’ corporate office recently helped out a family in Minneapolis, MN through Habitat for Humanity’s “A Brush with Kindness” program.  Cedar Valley Exteriors’ employees re-sided, painted, stained and provided exterior repair to a local family stricken with illness and financial issues.

Here are a few photos from our work:

Habitat for Humanity’s “A Brush with Kindness” program helps preserve home ownership by partnering with homeowners struggling to restore and maintain a safe and decent place to live. When basic expenses exceed income month after month, home maintenance is the usual casualty. Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions.

“A Brush with Kindness” is about connecting people and restoring homes through simple acts of kindness so that homeowners can once again live in a safe and decent home.  For more information, visit Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
