Students step up: Good Samaritan Project helps repair hurricane damaged home
15 high school students with the Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg’s Good Samaritan Project, and their chaperones, spent Thursday, July 12, 2018 painting Jill Heisey’s High Point house that was damaged by Hurricane Irma last year.
The students are part of 70 students giving up this week of summer vacation to perform service projects in the Tampa Bay area with the Good Samaritan Project.
The house was chosen by ServiceSource Warrior Bridge which provides services to improve the lives of people with disabilities. They also provided the materials for the job.
“Oh my gosh guys! it looks beautiful,” said Heisey when she walked out the front door to see her house. The crew arrived about nine Thursday morning and almost finished before an afternoon rain storm.
They just have a little trim work left said Rob Sumner, Community Relations Manager for ServiceSource.
