Accomplishment Spotlight: AmeriCorps VISTA Member at Tennessee’s Community Assistance Corporation Helps Volunteers Rehabilitate a Home of Vietnam Veteran July 27, 2012

Posted by servicecorpsnews in Accomplishment Spotlight.

Chelsea Hepburn, a Call to Service Corps VISTA member assigned to the Tennessee Community Assistance Corporation (TCAC), hosted a small group of volunteers and AmeriCorps members in rehabilitating the home of a Vietnam-era veteran. Hepburn facilitated local site arrangements for the volunteer crew comprised of a church group from Atlanta, Ga. Leading the service project were AmeriCorps members from the Appalachian Outreach AmeriCorps State Program. Two AmeriCorps State members from TCAC’s Making Veterans Priority program also contributed. Among their accomplishments, the volunteers installed a new roof and a new kitchen floor, cleaned and painted the garage, painted the bathroom and living room and hallway ceilings, and cleared the yard of brush. The project took a week to complete and involved over 10 volunteers.
