Rebuilding Together Seattle is a non-profit organization that provides low-income homeowners with home safety, stability and accessibility improvements free of charge. They partner with local businesses, community organizations, and volunteers to help facilitate these home improvement projects.
In May of 2018, Rebuilding Together partnered with Holmberg Mechanical and Ezell’s Chicken to come together to bring Henrietta Price’s beloved home back into good standing.
Ms. Henrietta Price
Sister Price moved into her home in 1977 along with her husband, who was a Navy WWII veteran. Together, they brought six daughters into this world and reared them together in their lovely house in Pritchard Beach, near Genesee. While helping to raise the children, Henrietta busied herself with owning and operating a hat shop called “The Hat Lady”. Over the years, Sister Price had become very involved with her local church, volunteering to help her community in any way that she could. After many years, her husband had passed, her business sold, and her children moved out and on with their own lives, leaving Henrietta to deal with the family home on her own. She struggled to keep up with repairs and maintenance, and as time passed, the house fell into disrepair.
Giving Back To Those Who Deserve It
We felt obligated to help give back to this wonderful woman who gave so much of herself to so many over the years. We, together with Rebuilding Together Seattle and Holmberg Mechanical rolled up our collective sleeves and got to work! Ezell’s provided the chicken, and Holmberg provided the muscle. Together we were able to make an incredible impact on the life of one special woman. All told we were able to provide for her a new deck, two new water heaters, much needed lawn care and tree pruning, roof repair, junk removal, kitchen repairs and new appliances.
What an amazing way to make an impact on the life of someone who not only needed the help, but ultimately deserved it. Here’s to Sister Henrietta Price!
