Christmas in October


USA:  BlueScope Kansas City has been helping restore houses in the annual 'Christmas in October' project for over 20 years.  Each year the volunteer team selects a house to repair or prepare for winter to help elderly and disabled home owners reduce utility bills.  BlueScope donates materials for the annual team project.  Activities undertaken over the years include painting, building handicap ramps and porches, installing smoke detectors, plumbing, cleaning gutters, repairing rooves and broken windows, cleaning up yards, etc.
