SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Habitat for Humanity volunteers are used to building a home from the ground up, but the project called A Brush with Kindness is a little different.
Instead of constructing full homes, volunteers make improvements to homes to help out the veteran, senior or disabled homeowner.
Wednesday the nonprofit group got help from Ninkasi, which provided volunteers and helped pay to build a wheelchair ramp for a home.
“It’s wonderful when a nonprofit can come together with a community business to make a difference,” said Jean Stover, Habitat for Humanity Spokeswoman.
“I was thrilled because it means a lot to be able to get in and out of the house a lot easier,” said homeowner Marie Wilkins.
The group’s looking for other people in the area to help out. Anyone who know someone that needs small improvements to their home, call the Eugene/Springfield Habitat for Humanity at 541-344-4809.
