Volunteers Remodel Abandoned Apartments For Homeless Veterans
The Iron Soup Historical Preservation in Campbell, Ohio found a way to give back to men and women who fought for our country. The organization works to works to remodel abandoned homes in Campbell. They have invested thousands of dollars on two apartments which will house four veterans. They will not only have a home, but won't have to pay rent. The goal of the project is to get them back on their feet and eventually moving them into permanent housing.
Volunteers helped Iron Soup Historical Preservation get the project done. They cut tiles, raked leaves and painted walls, preparing the run-down apartments for the veterans. “Our veterans are fighting, dying, getting maimed and everything for us, and they’re homeless?” Executive Director Linda Gens said. “They should be in a home. They should not be on the street somewhere.”
