Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna’s A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) in Port Deposit was part of a larger effort called Cecil Cares 2016 -- a countywide day of service coordinated by the Department of Community Services and Volunteer Cecil.  Volunteers weeded and mulched gardens, potted mums, painted and repaired a front porch, and prepared a deck for staining.

As part of its Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna’s A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) program and its volunteers spent several days working in Aberdeen’s Swan Meadows neighborhood in August 2016.  Habitat Susquehana volunteers installed smoke detectors donated by the American Red Cross; power-washed, sanded, and re-stained wooden decks and stairs; cleaned out clogged roof gutters; trimmed bushes and trees; and, weeded and mulched homeowners’ gardens.  ABWK is part of a larger home preservation initiative to revitalize neighborhoods through exterior improvements.

In April 2016, Congregates from Mountain Christian Church, as well as other volunteers, joined Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna in its A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) efforts at Edgewood’s First Harford Square community.  The jobs for that day consisted of re-grading, grass seeding, weeding garden beds, trimming hedges, and cleaning out rain spouts.  Thanks to a generous donation from the American Red Cross, volunteers also installed free smoke detectors in residents’ homes.
