People Working Cooperatively raised $160,000 for the Modifications for Mobility program at its recent Oscar-night fundraiser, Hometown Hollywood Gala.
“The essential home renovations and repairs provided by this program ensure that elderly, low-income and people with disabilities from the Greater Cincinnati community may continue to live safely in their homes,” said Jock Pitts, president and CEO of PWC.
Each year, PWC supports one family with a modification need greater than the typical job performed by the agency. This year, Hometown Hollywood raised a record $65,000 for modifications needed by the Johnson family, whose 950-square-foot home lacked the space to accommodate son Jackson’s medical equipment and care needs. The funds will be used to construct a 320-square-foot addition to the Johnsons’ home.
This year marks the final Hometown Hollywood event. A new format will be announced for 2017.
