Christmas Comes Twice For Neighbors In Need; Artesian Volunteers Renovate Local Home

For the fifth consecutive year, more than 20 volunteers from Artesian (NASDAQ: ARTNA), a leading provider of water, wastewater and engineering services on the Delmarva Peninsula, came together for Christmas in April® Cecil County to rehabilitate the home of a Cecil County neighbor.

“It was gratifying to see so many Artesian volunteers working together to help this family,” said Dian Taylor, chair, president and CEO of Artesian. “Christmas in April is intended to be a one-day event, but Artesian volunteers always do prep work in advance to make sure we can accomplish what we set out to do – give the family in need a safe, warm and dry home.”

House captains Jimmy Snyder, Rick Straub and Joanne Rufft led the effort. They were instrumental in obtaining a front door and lumber donation from Home Depot and a 15% discount on garden items from Lowes. By the end of the day, the volunteers had accomplished the following:

  • Improved the exterior by replacing all gutters, installing porch railings and front windows, repairing hose equipment and power washing
  • Repaired bathroom utilities by patching the bathtub, replacing the shower trim kit, installing a new vanity sink and faucet, repairing sink drains and fixing lighting and switch plates
  • Beautified the yard by cleaning up trash, mowing the grass, trimming trees, planting bushes and flowers, replacing the mailbox and house numbers and making repairs to the septic tank

Christmas in April Cecil County is the largest home rehabilitation organization in America. Its mission is to build partnerships to rehabilitate homes and community facilities of low-income, elderly and/or disabled homeowners so they can live in warmth, safety and independence and all at no financial cost to the homeowners.
