On Saturday, May 11, 2019, Christmas In April*Calvert County continued working on repairing and fixing up homes for citizens. This day they were busy working on a home for a couple in Lusby. On this particular Saturday, twelve Patuxent High School (PHS) Soccer Team players, along with three coaches and three Exelon employees with one retiree were getting the work done.
The work this day entailed redecking the wheelchair ramp, pressure washing the house and making handrails. Each of the volunteers knew their job and there was much measuring and checking twice and cutting boards. The saws were very busy.
It is always great to see the young and old working together to accomplish a goal. And when the projects are done, to see the homeowners’ faces and the look of joy the work has brought to them.
Christmas in April*Calvert County is always looking for volunteers, sponsors and donations. If you would like to help, please visit : https://www.christmasinaprilcalvertcounty.org/.
