Last month, we had the opportunity to start our "Brush With Kindness" home #4 in Simi Valley. We were fortunate enough in having some hard-working young men and women from the CLEAR Program, as well as students from Agoura and Westlake High Schools participate in this latest Preserve a Home project.
We also had the good folks from Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill help us out. They had the clever idea of celebrating their holiday party by volunteering for us about a week before Christmas. How cool is that?
The crew from Sharkey's worked hard all morning as they prepped the home for the primer application. They power-washed, caulked, spackled and left everything ready so the painting volunteers could do their thing the following day.
And making good on a promise made, I have posted their group picture on this blog. For one reason or another, I never got around to posting their picture. But as the saying goes, it's better late than not at all.

As we roll into the new year and build homes #55 and 56, keep an eye out for some wonderful reads, inspiring folks, praise to everyone who helps with our mission and even some real cool stuff for sale at the ReStore. And did you know that a new ReStore is coming to East County (aka Simi Valley)? Stay tuned for details and for the date of the Grand Opening!
