Volunteers with good hearts and skilled hands are being sought to help with small repairs and home improvement projects to benefit 81-year-old Uvalde resident Rosa Schulz.

As of Tuesday afternoon, $3,100 in donations has been raised to help transform Schulz’s Roberts Lane home, but handy people are needed to help complete the work.

On Aug. 6, Uvalde resident Angelica Silva met Schulz on an especially hot day, and gave her a ride home. Upon conversing with her and noting some disrepair at her home, Silva set to work, intent upon assisting the elderly woman.

Silva enlisted a dozen or so friends, and they located and installed a donated air conditioner. The group helped seal and better weather-proof the room in which it was installed.

They brought Schulz groceries, and pledged to provide more help.

Schulz, a resident of Uvalde for 27 years, relies upon monthly checks from Social Security for her limited income. Her home has suffered some damages throughout the years. The roof and interior walls are in need of repairs, as is her door.
