A group of people came out last week to paint some material that will be used in the renovation of Pauline and Simon Hunt's home.

Jeff Acton and some kids paint a board that will be used in the renovation of Pauline and Simon Hunt’s home. The Hunts have moved out of their home and the renovation has begun with the demolition of the parts of the existing home. The home is being renovated to make it wheelchair accessible for Pauline as she deals with the effects of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a disease that slowly weakens the body’s muscles. Home of the Hunts is a collaboration between the Kelowna chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the Revelstoke Community Housing Society. More than $200,000 has been raised for the project, which will be re-paid by the Hunt’s as a low-interest loan. The money will then go to fund future Habitat for Humanity projects in Revelstoke.
