Rebuilding Together Roanoke upgrades veteran's home

Posted: Updated:

Not only is September 11th a day of remembrance, but it has also become a day of service and a way to honor those who have served our country.

For example, volunteers with Rebuilding Together Roanoke were out working on the home of a Roanoke City disabled veteran who is unable to make the necessary repairs on his own.

Roc Bruzgul watched from a chair in his front yard as volunteers from Rebuilding Together painted his front porch.

"I bend down on a broken knee, praising the Lord that they are here helping me and my house looks a 100-percent better now," explained Bruzgul.

"I think it's important for us to turn such a horrible tragedy into a really great time for the community to come together," said Kendall Cloeter, Project Administrator.

More than 20 volunteers and three local businesses have picked up brushes and buckets to turn tragedy into triumph.
