Watch a video about this winning project from a 2017 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: Charleston, West Virginia
GRANTEE: Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley

Honey Do Crew volunteers perform household repair tasks — from painting a porch to replacing a front door — for low-income older adults in West Virginia’s Kanawha and Putnam counties. “For many seniors, these volunteers feel like family,” says Jennifer Wagganer, executive director of Faith in Action.

The AARP Community Challenge funds “quick-action” projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
