MLK Day of Service | KenCrest | 2018

For the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service this year I was joined by local volunteers to do some painting at one of KenCrest’s community homes. KenCrest provides an array of services for people with mental challenges and autism. Their community homes provide housing and services for clients with these special needs. It’s great to be able to help such a great organization.

I’d like to thank my fellow volunteers who came out to help with the project. One of those volunteers, Michael Gebhardt (The German Painter), is a professional painter who’s done work for many of my clients so it was great to get to work side by side with a pro on this project. Of course, his expertise and professional equipment were extremely helpful, too.

We had a great time volunteering and we were able to get more done than we had hoped. Michael repainted a bed

room for a new resident who will be moving in soon while the rest of us repainted baseboards, heaters, and window sills throughout the first floor of the house. All in all, a great day! Thank you to KenCrest for having us and thank you to Michael, Hui Sy, and Janet for joining me for the 2018 MLK Day of Service.
