Rebuilding Together Atlanta Teams with Sears to Provide Critical Home Repairs for Local Veteran

Today, Rebuilding Together Atlanta provided critical repairs to the home of Charlie and Carolyn Ruth. Sponsored by valued partner Sears, 15 volunteers from Rebuilding Together performed handicap access modifications, general clean up, interior repairs and interior painting as part of Heroes at Home, a program created through the collaboration of Sears and Rebuilding Together to improve the lives of veterans and their families through extensive home rehabilitations.

Renovation recipients Charlie and Carolyn are elderly homeowners that have been on the RTA wait list for some time. Charlie was a paratrooper in the Army in 1968. While in the military he broke his leg which still gives him trouble. As a result, he is on partial disability from the VA. He and his wife have been married for 40 years. Charlie and Carolyn, and all of us at RTA want to thank Sears and all the Rebuilding Together Atlanta volunteers for al their efforts and support!
