CINCINNATI - The homes of some local veterans got a little extra TLC as part of Home Depot's "Ramp It Up For Vets" service day.
Home Depot employees volunteered and teamed up with those from People Working Cooperatively to do some much needed repairs to the homes of veterans who otherwise would not be able to do them.
From painting to installing new porch stairs, the volunteers kicked off their day of giving back Thursday morning at 8 a.m. and continued through the afternoon.
World War II Veteran, Wiley Kendall, says he lives by himself and is very appreciative of the work volunteers did on his home.
"It's good that somebody can come out and help me and make this place look like somebody lives here," Kendall said with a smile.
A group of volunteers were hand at Kendall's home to replace his porch steps and paint the porch as well.
Additionally, Home Depot presented PWC with a $155,000 check to continue its service to the Tri-State's low income families.
