Volunteer renovation of Korean War Veteran's house completed

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The renovation of a Korean War Veteran's home in Montgomery has been completed.

Rebuilding Together Central Alabama, Exelis Action Corps, and AmeriCorps have been working since November to restore the veteran's home. Several volunteer groups were brought in to help with the remodeling of the house.

The resident of the home, 82-year-old Lindsey Kirksey, has lived in the house on McKinney Street his entire life. The house was in terrible shape before the multiple volunteer groups, which were involved, decided to repair it. Extensive roof, wall, and floor repairs were made to get the house back into living condition. Thanks to the Heroes at Home Project, volunteers were able to give back to a veteran who served his country.

"Heroes at Home is a terrific opportunity for us to give back to the men and women who have given so much to our country," Said Charley Shimanski, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together.

Mr. Kirksey was presented with his newly remodeled house at a ceremony on Sunday.

    Our Saturday weather was right on par with what we have been dealing with across central and south Alabama all week long... it was hot (temperatures made their way into the low/mid 90s), it was humid (heat index values went above 100° in many towns) and we saw some relief from the heat thanks to a few isolated areas of rain.
