A team of volunteers is performing tasks, which would be near impossible for elderly homeowners to tackle themselves.
Donald Holly joined a group of his coworkers from Freddie Mac. He says through just one day of volunteering, hundreds of homeowners get much needed assistance.
"It tries to help people who may be otherwise wouldn't have enough cash flow to be able to maintain their homes in a livable condition and they'd be forced to sell to a higher bidder, and through this project we're able to help homeowners stay in homes and that's what Freddie Mac's larger mission is as well," says Holly.
Twelve volunteers tackled those projects in an effort coordinated by the nonprofit Rebuilding Together, Alexandria. Homeowner Arminta Wood is ecstatic with the work.
"I'm gonna have to give back something because this is too wonderful," says Wood. "I'm going to have to go do some reading at the library or something because this is too wonderful!"
Volunteers also came out in the District and Maryland.
