Christmas in Action is an organization dedicated to completing free home repairs for low-income, senior homeowners allowing them to continue living safely and comfortably in their homes. The repairs take place on the last Saturday of each April through the organization's volunteer program. Employees from World Alliance Financial contributed a full day working on the home of a senior in need. Jobs on the worksite varied from repairing a roof, laying new carpet, installing new kitchen cabinets, sinks and counter tops and painting the interior and exterior of the home. One volunteer was also able to donate a mattress and box spring to a homeowner who needed it. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Christmas in Action and to do such good work in the community," stated David Peskin, chief executive officer of World Alliance Financial. "Helping seniors in need is our mission and our employees are engaged with local seniors in so many positive ways. We are lucky to have a work force that is so driven toward helping others." "World Alliance Financial and Christmas in Action are a natural fit," said Norma Okonski, director of media and public relations for Christmas in Action. "We are so thrilled to have them on-board this year." For more information, visit www.worldalliancefinancial.com or www.ciaoaklandcounty.org.
