FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Fort Myers grandmother is settling into her newly renovated home.
Crews have been busy making repairs to Mary Washington's home, and Tuesday, she got to move back in to the house on Galdiolus Drive.
Builders Care teamed up with several Lee Building Industry Association members and volunteers to remodel Washington's home.
The elderly woman is the grandmother of three grandkids, one of whom has multiple sclerosis.
Before crews got to work, the home had termite damage and was not suited for handicap mobility. The home was also lacking a central air conditioning and heating system.
Now, there's A/C, two renovated bathrooms and a new utility room among other changes designed to make life easier on the family.
This project has been made possible thanks to the generosity of several different Lee County businesses who have either donated or discounted their supplies or services.
