Volunteers will be traveling to Vail, AZ to help a 77-year-old widow maintain her property that she and her husband, who passed away a few years ago, worked for 23 years to turn into a desert oasis.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and community volunteers will partner with Vail resident and senior, Elizabeth S., to complete landscaping and restoration projects on her property. Elizabeth lives alone with her two small dogs. Despite her husband passing away a few years ago, Elizabeth still wears her wedding her ring. After purchasing their home, Elizabeth and her husband expanded their backyard to grow their garden and take care of animals. Now living alone and having broken her hip twice, Elizabeth cannot physically or financially afford to keep up her home and surrounding property.

Habitat Tucson volunteers will perform landscape clean-up on Elizabeth’s property, trim trees and paint the exterior of her home. This will help restore the dignity of the home’s appearance and ensure that Elizabeth and her two dogs are safe and comfortable in their home for years to come. Volunteers also look forward to honoring Elizabeth’s husband’s memory by maintaining the garden they cultivated together with great love and care.
