Volunteers Give A Binghamton Couple's Home A Facelift
6/9/2012 (Updated 11:04:10 PM)A home in Binghamton gets a new roof and the update gave its residents a new outlook on life.
Close to 80 volunteers from different church groups in the southern tier got to work early this morning on a house that needed some repairs.
Jim and Darlene Kittle call this house on Conklin Avenue home, but with a leaky roof and cracked furnace, it was in desperate need of a facelift. The Impact Project is a non profit organization that utilizes volunteers to rebuild the homes of people who lack the funds, family support or may be suffering from health issues.
Last year Darlene's husband suffered a stroke and became disabled, she feels fortunate for the help.
"We were just in a bind because there wasn't really any other place that could help us. We checked a lot of places out and they weren't able to do roofs and we are just so excited and thrilled" said homeowner Darlene Kittle.
Later on this year the organization will be taking on its 50th project since it began 8 years ago .
