Robert “Bobby” Z. is an Army veteran of the Korean war. He is a New Jersey native who has lived for the past 63 years in his home in Green Brook. Recently, he was hospitalized and is now in a rehabilitation center where he has regained his strength and is ready to return home. The only problem is that his home is in desperate need of repair, and until those repairs are made he cannot return home. Bobby has no other option, but to wait for these repairs to be made.
Our church has agreed to provide the labor to make his home livable again. But we need donations of money and materials to make that happen. Bobby needs a new kitchen, bathroom repairs (toilets, flooring, deep cleaning), two bedrooms painted (wall repairs needed) and floors cleaned and polished, living room/dining room painted and floors cleaned and polished, and some gutter and soffit work. In addition, he needs furniture, 2 beds (one for him and one for an overnight aide), couch, chair, recliner, bedding, towels, etc … In total, we estimate the cost of what is needed to get Bobby back home be $15,000.
To date we have raised approximately $9,000. We are hoping that you will help us to raise the rest.
