Last summer, Kennett Square-based Good Neighbors Home Repair helped a disabled woman who lives alone in West Grove and needed her front porch and steps replaced, according to a report in the Daily Local News.
The repair work was completed at no cost to the homeowner and performed by students in Good Neighbor’s Annual Youth Camp. A team of teens removed the rotting steps, disposed of the wood, cut new boards, and installed them under the guidance of a Good Neighbors project manager.
The disabled woman, who lived at the top of a steep hill, was grateful that she no longer had to worry about the hazard to herself and her visitors.
