Army Veteran Receives Assistance through Habitat for Humanity and Christmas in April*Calvert County
Dan Muchow, owner of Mold Remediation Services, contacted Patuxent Habitat for Humanity about some needed repairs to a client’s home where he was working. George Somerville, a WWII Army veteran, required several critical home repairs. Mr. Somerville’s home suffered water damage over the years resulting in the deterioration of the floor and subflooring in the kitchen, and the need for replacement windows in several areas of his home. Patuxent Habitat for Humanity’s Veteran Critical Home Repair Program is designed to help veterans with such needs as the new flooring and windows. However, we were not able to provide Mr. Somerville with all the required repairs and maintenance he needed. Through the collaborative efforts of Christmas in April*Calvert County, Exelon Militaries Actively Connected E*MAC, PAX NAS CPOA’s, Great Mills Trading Post, Harvest Fellowship Presbyterian Church, Patuxent High School ROTC, and several volunteers we were able make a difference in the life of this veteran. Our collective efforts resulted in making George’s home safer and more secure. He now has a home where he will be able to age in place with the dignity he and all veterans deserve.
