”I am very excited about this project and I hope everyone in the community is as well,” West stated. “We want to get people excited, we want them to prepare for it. We are always looking for people to join and help out. This is a great opportunity to help the community. To have these people come and donate their time is a great thing.”
The project is completely free for residents who apply.
”Many people think there has to be some hidden price,” West said. “There are no strings attached. Everything is completely free. We raise money and get donations from businesses and churches and all the money we raise goes to buying material to help fix up homes. It does not cost a dime for us to help you.”
Residents interested in applying to have their homes worked on should continue to watch for more information to be published in the Rushville Republican in the spring of next year. Information can also be obtained online at www.rushcountyyouth.org, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
