Saturday, the National Association of Remodeling Industry teamed up with Project Houseworks to give a home the repairs it desperately needed.

Project Houseworks is a nonprofit that assists elderly, low-income individuals with making safety and functional repairs to their homes; helping to keep them in their homes for a longer period of time.

Dozens of volunteers worked to replace the front deck, lighting, doors and kitchen today.

Dan Reuting, vice president of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, said, "It takes a lot of hard labor, materials and money to make something like this happen, but at the end of the day, it's about the community."

The Jeanpierres have lived in their home for more than 45 years, and today, it has a new sense of life. The house isn't done yet but Reuting says that seeing the smile on the Jeanpierres' faces is motivation enough to keep going!
