It was a full day of fence painting in the sun for a dozen SAIT employees, students and alumni who volunteered their time to help out a local Calgary senior citizen. They were taking part in a City of Calgary Senior Services initiative called ‘Paint the Town for a Senior’ which helps low income seniors maintain their homes and yards. Before we arrived a City crew came to clean up her yard, haul any items away, and mend and replace parts of her fence. As we put two coats on the inside and outside of her entire fence, the City crew began painting her house trim. The lovely lady, who lives alone with her two rescue dogs, came out to say hello at lunch and thank us for everything. Through this initiative, and by spending the day painting, volunteers helped her to regain a sense of pride in her home and create a safer environment for her and her dogs. This will allow her to stay in her house longer and know that it is well maintained for several more years. Great job team!
