(WHAS11) – It was an extreme makeover for one west Louisville woman. She has a fresh start now, thanks to the Jefferson County PVA and volunteers.
Fifty volunteers from Saint Agnes Parish swarmed to a local "repair affair" . They get together about once a year to help someone in need. In this case it was an 82 year old facing foreclosure after a tax scam.
The team was called in after she called the Jefferson County PVA. "It's a shame.” Tony Lindauer, a member of the Jefferson County PVA, said. “People that come out and prey on the elderly. Really what we need to do as a community is to look after one another."
Work was not only done to update the outside, but the inside as well. The team cleaned away years of grime off dishes and other belongings.
