Twenty-five million veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces have put their lives on the line to defend our country and protect our freedoms. On October 18, 2014 The Donaldson Group’s employees committed their time to serve Mr. Prather, a very special veteran who has lived as a productive member of his Poolsville community for the last 89 years. Working from dawn to dusk, more than ten volunteers invested their time to improve the living conditions in and around Mr. Prather’s home.
They completed the following projects to make it a safer and healthier environment for him and his family:
- Replaced a dilapidated basement portico with a new commercial-grade awning for improved safety
- Updated exterior hand-railing and light fixtures for better mobility
- Rebuilt basement retaining wall to prevent moisture damage
- Primed and painted cinder-block foundation around entire house, replaced and painted rotted boards on exterior of home, improved landscaping and installed a new American flag to beautify the home.
RTMC would like to thank The Donaldson Group for their commitment to our neighbors in need. We also look forward to working with Congressional Bank on November 11 for their 2nd annual Veteran’s Day project.
