Employees from Synovus and CB&T were busy Tuesday making repairs and doing improvements to the homes of area veterans in support of the House of Heroes organization.
The multi-day project had employees installing screen windows and doors. creating french drains, and cleaning up the yards at the homes of four veterans in the Chattahochee Valley.
Manly Buxton, a veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam Wars, said he appreciates the work being done to the home he shares with wife Ruby Jeanette.
“They’re doing work that I’m not able to do anymore,” Buxton said, as he watched the installation of new gutter guards to his home. About 30 volunteers from the bank were rotating shifts at Buxton’s home to complete several different projects, including planting a new crepe myrtle tree, pressure washing and painting the eaves, and building a new ramp to make it easier for Manly to get in and out of his home.
The project is part of a Synovus community outreach program called REACH: Recognizing and Encouraging an Atmosphere of Community and of Hope.
