In the spring of 2007, LeDuc & Dexter, Inc. partnered with Sonoma National Bank once again to sponsor a house to be rehabilitated under the supervision of the non-profit organization Rebuilding Together, which assists low-income residents with home repairs.
Dianne Cox, who heads the Santa Rosa Rebuilding Together Chapter, was ecstatic about the turnout on Saturday, April 29th for the Rebuilding Together Annual Workday. 250 volunteers showed up and applied to help repair 12 homes. No special skills are necessary, but they are certainly welcomed.
Toby Anderson, Residential Foreman for LeDuc & Dexter, has volunteered his time to help out. He is working on the home sponsored by LeDuc & Dexter and Sonoma National Bank at 801 Carr Ave. near Santa Rosa Junior College.
The woman who lives at this residence is 90 years old, so Anderson is replacing the old faucets in the bathroom and kitchen with new ones that feature handles that will make them easier for her to operate. Anderson is also installing a new toilet and changing out the trim on the tub. In the kitchen, he is doing a total tear-out and installing a new sink along with new waste and water lines.
Toby Anderson also volunteered his time to help a wheelchair-bound resident who lives on Guerneville Road in Santa Rosa. Anderson is remodeling the bathroom at that home with a new shower and new toilet.
Aside from this Anderson is also working on the second new construction home that LeDuc & Dexter is contributing time and materials for at Habitat for Humanity’s six home project on Mera Court in Santa Rosa. Toby is on the clock for this job, but he’s getting some volunteer help from Christine Dahl Silva, Habitat for Humanity Project Coordinator at the job site, says Toby, “She brings us coffee and donuts every morning.”
