Letter: Thousand Ten project helps, deserves blessing

On this past Sept. 14, a group from the Thousand Ten project knocked on our door and asked if we had any needs they could help us with. We told them our roof had been leaking for a while and we can’t get up there any more to fix it.

We also said that he had an old toilet that sets really low and Jack has a hard time standing back up. Jack also has a hard time getting in and out of the bathtub, and our space heater has a broken glass in the front.

Rick Cockerham told us he would talk with Rick Wilson, pastor of The Alley church and host of the Thousand Ten project, and see what they could do. Sam Kidwell from Cornerstone church replaced our toilet with a taller one that makes it so much easier for Jack. Rick Cockerham from Seymour Christian Church put up some handrails around the bathtub and front porch step, replaced the broken glass on the space heater and replaced some vinyl siding on the back porch. Bill Combs with Alpha and Omega construction tore off all the old roof, replaced several rafters and decking and put down new roofing material.
