LANSING, Mich. — On the 75th Anniversary of D-Day some volunteers got together to help a couple local Veterans.

Even the best houses need some work after 30-years.

Today two local Veterans, Juanita and John got some help that will allow them to stay in their home for years to come.

"All the materials are donated by Home Depot," Says Josh Carpenter the Store Manager of The West Lansing Home Depot.

Habitat For Humanity worked together to restore several parts of the home.

"We have a lot of work to do at this house we are working on doors and windows today, we recently had the roof replaced about a month ago and we are also working on a garage tear down next week," Says Sami Chau the Volunteer Program Coordinator.

The homeowners tell Fox 47 they've been waiting a long time and are grateful to have the work done.

The volunteers are grateful as well.

"It turns it from just being a regular job to something that's actually meaning and has meaning and it's fulfilling on a deeper level.

It actually bring happiness to my life," Said Brandon Pearl the Team Depot Captain For West Lansing Home Depot.
