Habitat For Humanity’s A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program has been working tirelessly through the summer to assist community members in feeling comfortable in their own homes.
ABWK’s latest project took a look at how important the service of a functioning window is to a well-run home. Without a window that’s properly installed and of good quality, a house may become drafty and allow bugs and other small critters to find their way in.
Local community member Christina Herrera had many windows in her home that were of low caliber and poor insulation that did not do much for the comfort of her bedrooms. Steve Kerr, Habitat for Humanity Construction manager, led the project of installing better windows for Herrera. Habit for Humanity intern Maggie Cochrane along with volunteer JD Scott also worked on the project and together they were able to complete the installation in three hours.
Along with installing the windows, the team made sure that the windows were all properly insulated and topped everything off by coating the frames in fresh paint.
ABWK would like to thank the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, AmeriCorps, Wells Fargo, Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, Utah Association of Realtors, Union Pacific Foundation and S & V Glass for their support.
“Without the sponsorship of these organizations, as well as donations from locals and vendors, Habitat for Humanity would be unable to help deserving people in need of home repairs,” stated a Habitat for Humanity representative.
