COMMUNITY WELCOMES BACK GLEASON FAMILYAfter a massive 5 day project the Gleason’s returned to their new home Friday October 8th at 5pm. The Gleason’s were met by hundreds of family members, neighbors and contractors waiting to welcome them home. The project had over 350 volunteers who gave of their time and talents to build a new 650 foot addition and remodel the existing home. Total value of the project is $70,000.
“The community has really rallied behind this family, we have so many people who come out and work and give of their time, and most probably do not even know the family,” said Sean Foote General contractor on the project.
The Gleasons were selected because of their 2 year old daughter, Presley. She suffers from a rare neuromuscular disorder. She has lost her ability to walk, talk and swallow. The new addition has a new family room, bedroom and bathroom that is ADA compliant.
Along with the Gleasons, 4 other families recieved room 'love overs' as well as the Now I Can therapy center. We will be spotlighting each family this week individually and show their makeovers as well so stay tuned!
