AUBURN, ME – On Saturday, March 30, Central Maine Orthopaedics staff members along with their families came together to participate in the Rebuilding Together L/A initiative.
Rebuilding Together, a national organization, is America’s leading non-profit organization to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities.
Among the CMO volunteers that came out were Jessie Hebert, Sandy Paradie, Jayne Comeau, and Amy Costanza. The team worked alongside the other 50-plus volunteers for the day renovating the exterior of a local home.
“The CMO team worked on a small home in Lewiston. We replaced some of the siding, painted the entire exterior, moved the homeowner’s shed, and removed some pesky hornets’ nests.” said Jessie Hebert.
“Everyone was so excited from the beginning.” added Hebert. “The homeowner did not have the income to take care of the repairs themselves, so there was a sense of sadness that someone could be in a situation like this. We wanted to do the best job we could for them, and they were very happy with the end result.”
This is the second year that CMO has participated in the event, and became an official sponsor of RTLA in 2011. RTLA plans to work on three additional homes in May.
“In the evolution of CMO, we made it a priority to become more active in community partnerships. We were very excited about the opportunity to sponsor RTLA as we believe they are providing a vital service to the Twin Cities.” said Central Maine Orthopaedic CEO Michael Cox.
