A group of students at Clarkston Community Schools in Michigan helped a mother who couldn’t afford to get her roof replaced, WDIV-TV reported.
Dawn Pineda, a single mother, works a full-time job, she badly needed a new roof.
“Depending on which way the rain was coming, it was leaking in one spot, and if the rain came another way, it was coming in another spot, so it was very stressful,” Pineda said.
Pineda could not afford to replace the roof because her income is just enough to pay the bills.
Alongside teachers and community partners, The Clarkston Construction Tech Student Builders decided to help Pineda. She is now getting a new roof moving her to tears.
“They’re really helping a lot, so I’m very very thankful to them, very,” she said.
Roofer Terry Burr, the Clarkston Community Church Handy Ministry, the Great Lakes Ace Hardware on Sashabaw Road, and My Habitat Clarkston helped the students with the project.
And the group hopes to keep helping others in their community.
