ANCHORAGE, Alaska --
About 50 volunteers from the Alaska district of a national hardware chain came together Sept. 14 to renovate the home of Staff Sgt. Sequoya Joseph, a personnelist with the 176th Force Support Flight.
The event was the result of a partnership between Home Depot's annual Celebration of Service Campaign and the non-profit "That Others May Live" Foundation. The volunteers painted interior rooms, replaced cabinets, renovated the bathroom, and installed flooring, countertops and a new front door.
Johnson moved to Alaska after losing her home to Hurricane Katrina. She lives in a townhouse with her mother, a sister and her 8-year-old son.
"Saying 'thank you' does not come close to how grateful my family and I are for everyone's willingness to help my family live in better conditions," Joseph said.
