Today is the first day of Hearts & Hammers. This event gives companies and organizations the opportunity to give back to the community. My company, along with some companies we work with on a continuous basis, will be sprucing up a house for an elderly lady.
Our duties for the workday include scraping the paint from the siding, replacing boards, repairing lights, moving plants, and painting the porch. The homeowner is 91 years of age and will be celebrating her 92nd birthday the day after her house is complete.
I don't know of a better birthday present to give than a home that is spruced up and safer for the family to enjoy their mother/grandmother/great grandmother's birthday.
