Tackle "honey-do list" for senior homeowner

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – (JULY 22, 2013) – More than a dozen members of the Rotary Club of Princess Anne at Town Center spent a recent Saturday sprucing up the home and yard of Omia Robbins, an elderly client of Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, as part of Rotary’s Paint Your Heart Out community service program.

The volunteer effort, which came together on June 29, included painting, cleaning and general repairs.

Robbins, 82, has been a homeowner in the Seatack neighborhood of Virginia Beach for more than 50 years but has had difficulty keeping up with some normal challenges that come with maintaining an older home.

"This is such a blessing! My back porch was getting on my nerves!" Robbins said in gratitude for the work performed by the Rotary Club volunteers.

Rotary member Bob Gering, a retired builder, organized the effort at Robbins’ home and has been involved in similar Paint Your Heart Out initiatives with other clubs. Fellow Rotarian Dave Moore reached out to the not-for-profit Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia for help in identifying a homeowner who needed assistance. "Mrs. Robbins is the perfect candidate for what we do," Moore said.
