TheVeteran Repair project uses Habitat volunteers to provide critical home repairsservices to local Veterans like SergeantFirst Class Anthony Driscoll, a 26 year veteran of the army who served both inAfghanistan and Iraq. Getting help withrepairs has been a challenge for Scott whose injuries have kept him from beingable to work on his own home. Atfirst Driscoll and his wife were skeptical of the help being offered themthrough the Veteran Repair program. “Thereare so many organizations out there that say they help veterans,” Driscollsays, “We have truly been blessed to find one of the few that actually standbehind what they say.” Habitatvolunteers have begun work on the Driscoll home to repair a portion of the roof and expect to have the work completed by mid-November.
