As we first told you in February, thirty Team Depot volunteers renovated HVAF’s Lyter House, a transitional home for six veterans. Now, volunteers have come back to install energy efficient windows throughout the house.
“We wanted to replace the windows in the home because during the first part of the project we noticed the home had older single pane windows,” says Matthew Rice, Home Depot store manager, store 2018. “We wanted to improve the comfort and heating efficiency of the home by replacing the windows. Our HDE team that installs our windows for us generously donated the product and labor to the project. I’m glad it turned out well!”
HVAF houses more than 200 homeless veterans and the Lyter House is one of fifteen properties. The renovation work is part of a $10,500 grant from the Home Depot. In addition to the energy-efficient windows volunteers installed flooring, cabinets, countertops and appliances as well as painted several rooms. The new floor plan of the kitchen makes the space more usable.
