Hearts & Hammers Volunteer Event
We are excited to share a story that exemplifies the spirit of community and the Davis Difference. The Davis Team is committed to volunteering our time and talents throughout the year. This fall, Davis connected again with Hearts & Hammers, an organization close to our hearts. Hearts & Hammers is an organization committed to providing exterior home improvement assistance for Senior Citizens, Disabled Individuals, and Veterans of the United States Armed Forces or their Surviving Spouse so that they may continue living independently.
Our story involves an incredible 50-year-old woman in Brooklyn Center. This resilient mother has faced her fair share of challenges, especially after a stroke left her physically limited. Despite her determination to repair the home herself, the past few years have been a tough journey filled with medical hardships and the pressing need for home repairs. Her lawn was overgrown, and the house needed new paint. Looking for resources to help, she contacted Hearts & Hammers. We were presented with her story through our previous affiliation with the program and immediately began compiling resources and volunteers to help.
Davis reached out to our trusted partners, Timco Construction and Synergy Architecture Studio, and we were thrilled to have them on board. We had one day to complete our makeover and we were bound and determined to bring this home back to life. The exterior of the house and garage were cleaned and painted grey to match the other houses in the neighborhood. The homeowner’s vision was to ensure that her house harmoniously matched the charming character of her community.
While one dedicated crew was hard at work transforming the home’s exterior, another crew took on the landscaping challenge. The crew tackled the overgrown branches and weeds that had taken over every side of the home and garage. Once that was completed, their focus shifted to the front of the home. Two rows adjacent to the front sidewalk received special attention. The team meticulously cleared and prepared the area. They planted vibrant flowers and added a fresh layer of mulch, all in preparation for the upcoming fall season.
The finished makeover was met with overflowing gratitude and literal tears of joy. This service project enabled us to witness together the incredible impact of teamwork, and perseverance. This wasn’t just a house makeover; it was a profound gesture of community. As we witnessed the incredible impact of volunteers, we were reminded that small actions can have a big impact. The Davis Difference is not just about one person; it’s about what we can achieve when we come together as a community.
