Londonderry Retirement Community has been working with the Neighborhood Service Center in Easton in their efforts to refurbish local homes by donating gently-used appliances for the homes. These appliances include refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, dishwashers, and washers and dryers.
According to Marilyn Neal, the executive director of the Neighborhood Service Center, the donation of these appliances and personal items has had a significant impact on the quality of life for many people. She comments, “Through these donations, a couple was able to have their first washer and dryer in their home. One client received a stove and no longer had to use a hot plate for cooking meals. It has been a blessing in the lives of these people.”
The appliances come from the transfer of residential units in Londonderry. Andy Hollis, executive director of Londonderry Retirement Community, adds, “The Londonderry community is very pleased that those in need can make use of these appliances. Londonderry residents have a history of generosity and this is yet another example of their efforts to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.”
