Group says ‘thank you’ by remodeling vet’s home

VET HOUSE

OKLAHOMA CITY—The country may be celebrating our nation’s veterans Sunday but a local vet was given early recognition for his service on Saturday.

Central Oklahoma’s Habitat for Humanity and Home Depot’s Veterans Critical Repair program teamed up to remodel the family of six’s home.

Volunteers spent the past six weeks doing minor repairs on the inside, while adding a new roof and building an extra room.

Amanda Isaac said, “Before Habitat did the work, the roof was so bad one of the rooms was deteriorating and was caving in. So there was a lot of mold and things like that, so they demolished it and rebuilt it.”

The family says they are thankful they will be able to move back into their home before the holidays.

Veterans interested in the program can call Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity’s office and ask for information.
