SMITHVILLE — The Impact Project, based in Greene, is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving Chenango County and other surrounding areas by providing assistance for home renovations, financing and construction.
Last week, the Impact Project partnered with a woman owned business, First Choice Roofers and Renovation. The business donated all of the labor and shingles to roof the home of Ray and Sherry Butts in Smithville Flats.
“Today we're here because of Mayra Luna and her organization because they helped make this happen. She brought her crew and helped get material for pennies on a dollar,” Impact Project Executive Director James Willard III said.
He added, “This roof is the second part of the three part project. The first project was to replace the water tank, redo plumbing, and tear out some damaged flooring. A master plumber came in and it took about six hours. Phase two is the roof and the third part is the handicap ramp.”
“We recently got the permit for the handicap ramp through Chenango County Code Enforcement and in the next few weeks, we’ll be back to work on that,”said Willard.
