O.C. George, 90, has lived in Lancaster since he was 15 years old. He worked multiple jobs to raise his family. With 10 children to feed, clothe and care for there was little money left for home repairs.
“I've lived on Market Street for 20 years and never had any work done on my house,” George said.
That changed on June 15, when nine Salkehatchie volunteers showed up to make much needed repairs to his home. They installed vinyl siding, painted, restored his bathroom and repaired his kitchen.
