Vet Helped by Pax Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity

A veteran of the US Army received help from Habitat for Humanity on the 244th birthday of the Army.

Patuxent Habitat for Humanity chose June 14, the birthday of the US Army and Flag Day, as the perfect day for its veteran critical repair program to work in partnership with Christmas in April, Calvert County, Exelon Militaries Actively Connected and several other volunteers to build a ramp for Army veteran John Smith and his wife in Great Mills.

The Smiths’ need was brought to the attention of the local organizations by the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans organization. The groups are always in need of volunteers like professional plumbers, roofers and carpenters, as well as people who just want to help someone.

Patuxent Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone, especially veterans, deserve a decent place to live, with the dignity they have earned by serving this country.

The Patuxent Habitat for Humanity veteran critical repair program was created to repair homes for military veterans and their families. The program helps with repairs identified in Habitat’s Critical Home Repair guidelines that can vary from roof repair and structural wall repairs to installing wheel chair ramps and remodeling bathrooms so they can be easily used by veterans with disabilities.

Anyone who would like to donate or volunteer for veteran programs can call Laurie at 301-863-6227, ext. 16 or email laurie@patuxenthabitat.org for more information.
