On behalf of the Board of Directors of Christmas in April Calvert County, I would like to thank the community for their overwhelming support of our Christmas in April annual work day, the last Saturday in April. April 28 found more than 500 volunteers improving 30 homes of low income homeowners in Calvert. What a wonderful feeling it was to experience the generosity of spirit and time of these volunteers as they transformed the lives of so many persons.
Roofs were repaired and replaced. Homes were made more accessible for homeowners with disabilities. Plumbing and electrical work made homes more usable and safer. Painting and new flooring added brightness and cheer to the houses. Yard work and new shrubbery enhanced the outside appearance of the dwellings. These are just some examples of the work performed that day.
This could not be done without the dedication of wonderful volunteers, churches, organizations and businesses, and the financial support and donation of supplies from so many.
