SenSource Lends a Hand at First Veteran’s Build

Yesterday, June 4, SenSource employees volunteered at Habitat for Humanity Mahoning County’s first ever Veteran’s Build for the Skok family. This was the first home for the Veteran’s Build project but the 43rd house in Mahoning County. Ground was broken for the home on March 1, 2014 and is projected to be completed by the end of July. James Skok is an honorably discharged veteran, having served 18 years in the Marine Corps before being injured. Group James, the soon to be home owner, was on site while we were there and more grateful than you could imagine.  “Thank you, thank you, thank you”, is all he could say. Skok believes every veteran deserves what he is being given.  In getting to know him he explained to us, “if everyone would donate only $5.00, every veteran could have a home.” In a day of work we were able to help hang some drywall and complete the first coat of paint on the exterior of the home. We were happy to help such a happy, thankful and deserving family. Joe The Veteran’s Build project has been in the works for nearly four years now and everyone is thrilled to see it take off.  Read the following article to learn more about the Skok Family build and the Veteran’s Build project: www.habitatmahoningcounty.org/groundbreaking-for-the-skok-family/.
