Community joins forces with Rebuilding Together to repair homes

Volunteers with the City of Lake Charles and Entergy joined forces Saturday morning with Rebuilding Together to help residents make necessary repairs to their homes.

Aside from a fresh coat of paint and pressure washing the outside of homes, volunteers were also insulating the attics of the homes to help make the home more energy efficient and lower utility bills.

North Blake Street resident Joseph Reed said he appreciates the help.

"I would not have been able to do this on my own. I couldn't afford to do I am very thankful for all these people taking time to come out here," said Reed.

The volunteers were working on several homes this weekend and have a dozen set for a later date.
