CASCO, Maine, May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — It was an impressive showing of “Mainers helping Mainers” on Saturday, May 22, as volunteers from the DIY Network hit show Maine Cabin Masters and crews from Landry/French Construction came together to help replace 68 windows in Camp Sunshine’s Viterbi Family Activity Center.
Camp Sunshine’s Executive Director, Michael Katz looked on astounded with a great sense of appreciation as many hard-working volunteers shared their time and talents to help get this massive construction project finished in one day.
“A project of this size would have been impossible for our small maintenance crew to handle alone,” said Katz. “We are in awe of the amount of work the groups were able to accomplish, and we simply cannot thank everyone involved enough.”
Replacing the windows was a high-priority project for Camp Sunshine because each of the windows that were replaced were 20 years old. The donation of skilled labor provided monumental savings for the non-profit, in addition to making the building far more energy efficient.
“We were nervous about getting it all done in one day,” said Ryan from Maine Cabin Masters. “But thanks to my guys who gave up a Saturday to help out, as well as the team from Landry/French Construction, we all came together and accomplished a lofty goal for a very deserving organization. We’re all proud to have been part of it.”
“Having the opportunity to complete a needed project for Camp Sunshine allowed us to assemble a large group for a volunteer day,” said Denis Landry, President of Landry/French Construction. “With many L/F employees, family and friends coupled with Veterans Framing and Maine Cabin Masters, we were able to meet our goal for window replacements and wood trim. The best part was the team work and fun we had all working together and doing it for such a caring organization with an incredible mission! We worked hard, had fun and made new friends while helping a great organization. Can’t beat that!”
