On Friday, June 20, five employees from Home Crafter sponsor, Micron Technologies, Inc. —Kathy Fox, Joe Meditz, Brad Miller, Lisa Surgener and Dan Waits — helped Habitat insulate the attic and weatherize the crawl space at Maria’s Manassas Park Home. Two executives from Micron’s Tokyo and Hiroshima offices stopped by the work site to see their colleagues in action.
Habitat for Humanity and Project Mend-A-House Team Up at Maria’s
Habitat for Humanity Prince William County and Project Mend-A-House are collaborating to make Maria’s home repairs.
“Habitat for Humanity’s mission is based on partnerships,” says Traci DeGroat, President/CEO of Habitat for Humanity Prince William County. “We partner with families, sponsors, businesses, volunteers and community leaders to help those in need in our community. Working with Project Mend-A-House, which is an organization that also believes that everyone deserves a decent place to live, is another avenue to making sure that the limited income residents of our community are served.”
Habitat is remediating the mold that has overtaken the home; replacing attic insulation; replacing the HVAC system and cleaning the HVAC ducts; insulating the crawl space; performing radon testing; and replacing the carpeting.
Project Mend-A-House will sheetrock and paint the ceiling and walls that were removed for mold remediation; repair and paint the ceiling and walls in the utility room; replace the smoke and CO2 detectors; and seal and repair the exterior siding.
