Brighten A Corner – March Project

Writen by: Hank Wethington

It’s funny, we’ve been volunteering with Brighten a Corner for a while now, and this is the first post I’ve made. Well, funny may not be completely correct, but you get the picture. The project for March was for a family in Nipomo:

Liz works with battered women in the county and Manuel used to be a landscape contractor. Four years ago Manuel was diagnosed with Amyo- trophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) commonly known as Lou Gherig’s disease. Liz works faithfully with those who are literally beaten down every day, then she comes home to love and care for her husband.
The mobile home in which they live in Nipomo is very clean but outdated and increasingly not meeting Manuel’s needs. It gets very cold in the winter and at night, which makes things even more difficult for Manuel. It is also not handicapped friendly, and as he moves closer to needing a wheelchair permanently, that becomes increasingly necessary.

We were able to only help out for a couple of hours, but I want to encourage to keep an eye on their web site for future projects where you can help. Brighten a Corner is also always looking for financial help. You can see pictures of this most recent project via their Facebook fan page, or go to the Brighten A Corner homepage and check out past projects.
