July 15, 2013. What’s happening @AIBD_National?

…Please contribute to AIBD’s National Work Day!

PASADENA, CA – This Friday, AIBD volunteers from all over the country are set to do exterior repair and painting at the home of Yiu Cheng Ho and his family in Temple City, CA. He is the sole supporter of his family, which includes and his wife and two small children. Our group will be the opening day group. This involves mainly prep work – scraping, cleaning, power washing.

In addition to working on the house, we want to help raise $1700 for supplies and materials.
