MSH Receives UWCM Community Response Grants for Howard, Anne Arundel Properties
MSH received two Community Response Grants from United Way of Central Maryland to assist with emergency repairs at two of our properties, one located in Howard Co. and the other in Anne Arundel Co. Both projects were completed quickly thanks to this assistance.
We thank all of the United Way donors whose generous contributions create these wonderful opportunities for assistance with urgent needs! Click here to learn how to designate part of your United Way contribution to Main Street Housing.
It was a bright and sunny Saturday morning on September 27th when six smiling volunteers from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ellicott City arrived at a MSH property in Howard County. MSH was fortunate enough to again receive hours of volunteer service by St. John’s parishioners as part of Service Over Self, an event of the church’s Outreach commission to encourage community involvement.
The Gawthrop and Geist Families wasted no time in getting their hands dirty in the name of property improvement! In a few short hours, they spruced up the building inside and out – weeding and mulching, power-washing concrete, staining landscape timbers and washing windows. By noon, the property was looking spiffy and ready to welcome home a new Tenant on Monday.
MSH is proud to provide quality housing in desirable communities, and we are so grateful to have help from our friends to keep our homes beautiful. Many, many thanks to St. John’s Episcopal Church and to their members, the Geist and Gawthrop families, for spending their Saturday on Main Street!
