Many helping hands work to Build It Forward

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

More than two dozen volunteers braved the cold on Tuesday, February 8th,  to take part in BayWest’s Build day and work on two houses that will be given to two local families through Paul Brandt’s Build It Forward.

Whether mixing paint, laying the subfloor in the living room, handing out construction equipment or pouring a warm of coffee, no task was too big or small for this group of passionate volunteers. Paul Brandt even stopped by for a ‘surprise’ visit, showing no hesitation as he applied a fresh coat of paint in the kitchen.

Brookline was on site to help coordinate interviews with the media who, for the first time, were able to view one of the homes which will be featured on the show later this year.
