SNOW HILL, MD — Disaster Kleenup International Inc. (DKI) member Royal Plus Inc. helped welcome the McDonald family back into their home just in time for Christmas after the structure was severely damaged by a fire in early December, according to a press release.
Royal Plus, as well as local volunteers, quickly worked to rebuild the entire second floor of the house and also restored items on the first floor that were damaged by smoke, the release stated.
According to the release, the McDonalds were escorted to their home by the fire department, many of them the same people who had rescued the family the night their house had caught fire.
Though the project was short $3,700, leaving no money to purchase furniture for the rooms of the McDonald children, the local community donated enough funds to furnish the rooms and provide numerous gifts and a Christmas tree for the family, the release noted.
Matthew Odachowski, president of Royal Plus Disaster Kleenup, said: "We are very proud to help a family in need and bring a community together for the holidays. It is very important for us each to do our part and give back to our communities."
