From Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna:
As part of its Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna and its volunteers spent several days working in Aberdeen’s Swan Meadows community. Under the A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program, they installed smoke detectors donated by the American Red Cross; power-washed, sanded, and re-stained wooden decks and stairs; cleaned out clogged roof gutters; trimmed bushes and trees; and, weeded and mulched homeowners’ gardens.
ABWK is part of a larger home preservation initiative that helps low-income homeowners revitalize their neighborhoods, which is especially important for those who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. In Harford County, the event is held twice a year. In April, Habitat conducted similar ABWK activities at Edgewood’s First Harford Square neighborhood.
