WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Five Air National Guardsmen from the 116th Air Control Wing, gave up their Saturday to volunteer with Rebuilding Together Warner Robins performing repair and renovation work for a local low-income household.

Rebuilding Together is a national non-profit organization that has been providing critical repairs and renovations for low-income homeowners across the United States for almost 25 years. Saturday was National Volunteer Day for the organization and the Airmen from the JSTARS wing jumped on board to do their part.

"I first got involved with Rebuilding Together when I was stationed at Offutt Air Force Base," said Tech. Sgt. Kerstin Haase, 116th ACW Comptroller Flight. "I wanted to do the same thing in Warner Robins because the community has given so much to the base and the Air National Guard."

As the homeowner expressed her gratitude, the team of Guardsmen worked hard throughout the day painting, pressure washing, repairing plumbing fixtures and completing general repairs to enhance the safety of the home.

"It's nice to be out here today helping a family in our community," said Senior Master Sgt. Daniel Carthy, superintendent of the 116th Comptroller Flight. "I grew up in a house that was in disrepair, and I know what it's like to have someone come in and help you out. It's nice to be out here helping someone else and give that back."
