Revenue raised through the Warrior Fun Run and Sail to support Patuxent Habitat for Humanity’s Veteran’s Critical Home Repair Program, has allowed us to construct a ramp for a deserving Navy veteran in Drum Point this coming weekend.
William Quinn is a disabled Navy veteran; he is married and has one son. In 1982 while assigned to the CB’s both of his feet were crushed in an accident. Mr. Quinn says his goal in life is, “to be kind to everyone I meet.” He works as a substitute teacher in St. Mary’s County; he also has a family friendly YOU TUBE channel: William Quinn. Mr. Quinn attends Our Lady Star of The Sea, Solomons where he is a Brother Knight with the Knights of Columbus. He has volunteered in the past with Christmas in April and his church to help other local families in need. It is his turn to get a helping hand. A new ramp and related improvements will enhance the quality of life for this veteran and his family. “Our goal in this project is serve a Veteran who has unselfishly served and defended our country, while promoting active volunteerism within our community,” said Steve Sanders of Christmas in April.
Christmas In April Calvert County Inc. is a United Way Member Agency, which helps disabled and elderly homeowners and families with children, who live in and own their house and cannot afford to pay for home repairs. Christmas in April works all year to repair dozens of houses on the last Saturday of April. Emergency repairs and follow-up work are done throughout the year.
