Early Veterans Day gift: Volunteer project makes WWII vet’s home safer

Three days before Veterans Day, a West Seattle man who served in World War II got an early gift.

Rebuilding Together Seattle, with help from Renewal by Andersen, worked on the Beach Drive home of World War II veteran Elvino Naccarato. Along with fencing, the volunteers worked to build safer stairs and a porch.

They also worked to clean and organize the home, hauling away what they cleaned up as well as debris from work they did.

Kerianne Halpin, a spokesperson for the project, explained, “We want to help someone who helped us through their dedicated service. By making improvements to his home, we will make it safer and more comfortable for Elvino.”

P.S. RTS accepts applications from qualifying homeowners in need. It welcomes volunteers, too.

    This was so nice and I’m sure an even more special gift for him since he lost his wife this year.
