‘It’s a wonderful thing’: Rock the Block recipient grateful for community help
MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Rock the Block, an initiative to bring neighbors and the community at large together to improve their city, made a stop in Menasha via the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity.
The project has helped a widow Menasha and her son, who is disabled, as one of the families whose home is being revitalized as part of this year’s neighborhood project.
“What comes to mind in the first place is that this is such an unexpected blessing for me,” said Grace Truebenbach, recipient of Menasha Rock the Block. “We have been here since 2008, I liked living here in Menasha, it’s a nice area.”
Rock the Block offers affordable repairs including roofing, siding, window and door replacement, porch repairs, exterior repairs and upgrades, painting and landscaping. All of the work done through this program is made possible by volunteers and donations from the community.
“It’s looking very good and it’s going to be great. It’s something I could never do on my own,” Truebenbach said. “That’s why I’m so thankful and thankful for what they do for me.”
Truebenbach admits she had never heard of Rock the Block before until she was contacted by letter to become a recipient.
“I was surprised and thought, how did they choose me? But, I was very happy. I think it’s a wonderful thing they do for communities and people who need help,” Truebenbach explained.
She remains forever grateful for the help provided through the program.
“I am blessed. I am at peace. I have joy. and I love seeing young people of all ages here helping me and people all over Fox Valley,” Truebenbach concluded.
