Volunteers from Our Lady of Fatima Church, St. Matthew’s and Wilton Presbyterian churches and Wilton Kiwanis will be in Norwalk Saturday, May 2, to participate in the 28th annual HomeFront Day. They will be repairing and renovating homes of families in need who have suffered the effects of a brutal winter.
The Wilton volunteers will be among 2,500 volunteers all-told working on 70 homes for low-income families throughout much of Connecticut and Westchester County, N.Y. More than 60 corporate, faith-based and civic groups are taking part, backed by the financial support of foundations, individuals, as well as generous product donations from building suppliers and pro bono services from building trades professionals. This effort brings HomeFront to the mark of 2,870 homes revitalized in the program’s history, delivering $50 million of service where it is needed most.
HomeFront is a community-based program dedicated to keeping low-income homeowners in their homes with an improved quality of life through substantial repairs completed at no cost to them.
