Senior Home Services
Volunteer Thank you!
4th Quarter 2019
New Life United Methodist Church – Volunteers from New Life completed repairs to three (3) county Senior’s homes. The work included repair work to front steps, and yard work, including tree & shrub trimming and yard cleanup. New Life is also an active contributor to an on-going series of projects at another of our Senior’s homes. Thanks!
Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Life Change Academy – Volunteers (members and staff) provided painting services for a Senior’s home, working to satisfy a building code enforcement concern. Thanks to these young people who are working to make a positive change to themselves and one of our county Seniors.
Project Homes – One of our partners has completed extensive repairs to one of our county Senior’s homes, including a roof repair from when a tree limb penetrated the roof.
TruTimbers Arborists – Volunteers from TruTimber visited one of our Seniors homes and removed a dead tree and several overhanging tree limbs on the property. Thanks for your help!
Bridge Academy – A student volunteered to clean up yard debris and trim shrubs on two properties, assisting a couple of Chesterfield’s Seniors. Thank You, Hunter!
AdvanSix volunteers, in conjunction with Rebuilding Together – Richmond, completed several repairs for a Senior in Ettrick. The team uncovered a significant structural issue that the resident was not aware of. The roof penetration for an abandoned chimney had decayed the floor boards and support joists. The team repaired this issue, restored the flooring, made repairs to the front concrete porch and painted the exterior trim. As a result, our Senior’s life was changed, and her home is more livable, safer and healthier. THANK YOU!!
Ironbridge Baptist Church – a team of volunteers performed some needed yard maintenance, weeding, and removing accumulated debris in preparation for repairs to the home’s deck. Another team has formed to complete the repairs to the deck stairs and railings in October. THANKS!
Chesterfield County Technical Center Volunteers
On February 15, 2019, staff members from the Chesterfield County Technical Center, volunteered their time to assist a couple of the county seniors with some needed yard maintenance and minor repairs. Giving back to the community in this fashion provides rewards not only for the recipients, but those volunteers walked away with a sense of pride in helping our county seniors. This Work Day was a direct result of a budding partnership with the Chesterfield Council on Aging Senior Home Services committee, and the County’s Aging & Disability Service and Community Enhancement departments. We’d like to recognize and thank those staff members for their efforts in improving the lives of our county seniors.
