Porch Repairs Crew

As a non-profit, Restoring Hope Transplant House, has the need for experienced volunteers to help us with repair work. Pete Szotkowski, our board president and construction expert, made contact with the Blackhawk Church Emergency Response Team as they are known for this type of work. Coordinator David Torkelson came ready with other team members Alex Butz, Robin Carley, Paul Hansen, Wai Keat Tan and Eric Teigen. They gave up their Saturday to work in the rain, fix our rotted, broken porch step rails and added much needed support to one of our columns. What a gifted group of men. They taught us a lot more than construction. We are incredibly grateful.
