Charity to Repair & Renovate 86 Prince George’s County Homes

Christmas comes eight months early this year for the elderly and disabled in Prince George's County.

Thousands of Prince George’s County community volunteers as well as the County Executive, Rushern L. Baker, III will repair and renovate 86 homes during the 24th Annual Christmas in April program on Saturday, April 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Since 1989, Prince George’s County Christmas in April has repaired and renovated over 2000 homes and donated over $35 million in supplies and service for repairs. 

“Hundreds of Prince George’s County employees are once again volunteering to help transform neighborhoods and lives as we repair and renovate the homes of some of our neediest residents and neighbors," explained Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III.

This is the Eighth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is now open through May 13th. The DC Design House benefits Children's National Medical Center.

Victoria Sanchez of Victoria Sanchez Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.victoriasanchezinteriors.com, was inspired by her own children for the design of Space 21, the Teenager’s Getaway. “I looked to their likes and dislikes, and their wants and desires as I created this design,” says Sanchez, who is excited to part of the Design House but also knows the amount of work that had to be completed in a short period of time.
