Yes, you read that right- Christmas comes a little early here in Kansas City! At Bordner, we are committed to being a positive force in our community, so we were thrilled to partner with Christmas in October for a wonderful community service project.
If you haven’t heard of Christmas in October (CiO), they are a great organization that rehabilitates houses of low-income homeowners in Kansas City- at no cost to the homeowners. By rebuilding and repairing houses, they revitalize neighborhoods and allow needy families, elderly or disabled residents, and veterans to live with dignity.
Winters can be cruel here in Kansas City, so CiO takes place on the first two Saturdays of October, making sure repairs are completed in time for the home to be warm and safe before winter weather hits.
We were approached to help renovate the home of a 65 year old lady who could not afford to make the necessary home repairs. CiO volunteers were able to do much of the work on the home, but needed a skilled stucco installation team to ensure a good quality result for the homeowner. Our Kansas City stucco installation team was happy to help, replacing damaged stucco and creating a good seal to make sure the repairs will last for a long time.
It’s an honor for us to be able to help out with projects like this, so we were humbled to receive this note from the homeowner.
