"I do this because I like helping people a lot and it's very rewarding, especially the veterans like Mr. Goddard here," Penn State volunteer Alex Wood said.
Wood was one of the 25 volunteers from Home Depot and Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County to give a local veteran’s home a face-lift.
86-year-old Homer Goddard, a U.S. Korean War veteran and recipient of a Bronze Star was in need. Goddard’s daughter, Lejeune, is proud of his sacrifice and knew he was well deserving of this gift.
"He was willing as a young man to go in and save his country, and it's still all about the red, white and blue," Lejeune Goddard said.
Lejeune said the remodels are a blessing since his father’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, making it difficult for him to get around.
The volunteers installed two wheelchair ramps, widened the interior doors, and remodeled his bathroom to make his home wheelchair accessible. They are also updating his kitchen floors and are giving his home a fresh coat of paint.
