Volunteer Project Brings Home Upgrades to Houston-area ResidentsThursday,
Karsten Interior Services’ latest volunteer effort hit close to home for a few area residents. The company joined forces with Houston Christian High School and Rebuilding Together Houston to make repairs on five elderly residents’ homes.
The endeavor, part of a community service project launched by the high school’s junior class, brought the teams together to perform light carpentry work. Over several days, Karsten replaced damaged siding, installed screen doors, replaced window trim and performed similar tasks.
Company President Dan Karsten said he was proud of his team’s willingness to make a difference.
“Houston is our home. We want to see the city — and its residents thrive,” he said. “If there’s a way we can utilize our skills to brighten someone’s day or improve their conditions, we absolutely will. It’s the right thing to do.”
While the affected residents benefit from the construction updates, Karsten said they weren’t alone.
“I think our team got just as much out of the work as the homeowners did — maybe more,” he said. “We’re glad we could help.
