TOWN OF TRIANGLE (WBNG) — With help from Broome County the Impact Project started work on its 106th good deed Friday.
Doris Hulbert, a woman in Triangle, needed a new roof for her trailer, she had her roof temporarily fixed by local firefighters and a church, after they did some minor fundraising, she then applied for assistance through the Impact Project.
Shortly after, the organization was awarded with a $15,000 grant from Broome County, in order to assist rural residents.
50 volunteers came out to help her build a new roof today.
“It’s very impressive, i could not believe that they were even able to do the work and if it wasn’t for the help of friends and neighbors and the office for aging I wouldn’t be able to get it done,” said Hulbert.
The Impact Project is an independent non-profit that does major home repairs for the elderly, handicapped, or low income families.
Since it started in 2004, the Impact Project has completed 106 projects in 5 counties.
