Thanks to the supporters of Running Strong, “We made an elder’s home safer and warmer for his grandkids,” said Pinky, adding that “weatherization should help with winter heating bills.”
In addition, “sorely needed repairs to the homes access ramp and stairs were made because we were able to leverage available resources and labor,” she noted.
While many homes are need in of repair on the reservation, Pinky knew this veteran’s home needed to be repaired and winterized before the cold weather strikes.
“Stanley is an elder living with five of his grandchildren,” reported Pinky. “Hail and rain in 2018 and severe winter storms in early 2019 left his home without siding. Four of his six windows were broken, and a kitchen door you could see daylight all around the frame.
“Now he and his household are much safer and healthier because of this.”
