Before Spc. Russell Madden set out for his tour in Afghanistan, he told his family that he would renovate their home when he came back. Tragically, Madden was killed in action during his deployment, and never had the chance to fulfill his promise to his family.
For the second time, local resident Michael Barrett has taken it upon himself to donate his time and skills to picking up where the fallen heroes left off. For the past 100 days he’s been working on the home, while the family is stuck waiting in a small hotel room. Michael says the project has taken far longer than expected due to the lack of volunteers that have showed up to help with the project.
This is a fire mission for anyone near, or able to travel to the Bellevue KY area to assist in anyway you can, to help get this project done and the family back into their home.
Mr. Barrett needs help in the following specialties: Siding, Painting and Trim. If you or someone you know is in the Bellevue, KY area or can travel there to help out, Mr. Barrett says they can get the home finished quickly. Watch the full story below, and if you are interested in volunteering, email or call Michael Barrett at [email protected] or 513-557-8727.
Thanks to our brothers at Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sgt Said for bringing this to our attention.
