Mansour Moselehi w/ Jenny Goff
The Rotary Club of Leesburg working with Jenny Goff of Loudoun Caregivers assisted Mansour Moselehi, 84 with cleaning up his property. Unable to do the work himself, Mansout reached out to Loundoun Caregivers for help. This is the second project we have participated in partnership with Loundoun Caregivers. The first was building a set of stairs for a handicapped man living alone. Our members showed up at 8:30 Saturday morning with tools in hand along with bags of mulch. In 3.5 hours they completed the job filling 50 yard bags with yard waste. Mr. Moselehi was thrilled with the makeover.
Our club built a set of stairs for Calvin as part of our Rotary Community Service.
Our club secretary John Whisler, organized the project after hearing about Calvin's need for stairs to his motorhome. On hand to assist John were Past President Valerie Beaudoin, Doug MacLean, John Kimball, Ron Rogos, Ernie Carnevale, and Peter Vaka. Calvin lives on the grounds of Loudoun RV and Boat Storage.
