Habitat For Humanity Repairs Home For Legally Blind Woman

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A group of local volunteers gave back to the community in a big way.

Habitat for Humanity and workers from Starbucks helped paint, clean up trash and fix the doors and windows of a Salisbury house, the home of a legally blind woman. It's a part of a new neighborhood revitalization program called "Brush With Kindness." It focuses on repairing and painting the exterior of homes for people like Beatrice Parker who can't afford the help.

"It's a godsend," said Parker.  "It's more than a dream, it's just wonderful to have it done. You don't know how you're going to [fix your home] and everything is working out pretty good.

"[I take it] one day at a time and I'm so grateful."

We're told Habitat for Humanity also recently put a new roof on her house. This renovation project is Habitat's first Brush with Kindness effort.
