Local group helps couple with down syndrome

September 16, 2006

Albany -- A local employment company is giving back the community by painting the home of a couple with down syndrome.

Kelly Services is celebrating it's 60th anniversary of business, and to show thanks to the community, staff members are cleaning and painting the inside of this home.

The home belongs to a couple with down syndrome, who can't do the work on their own.

Volunteers say it's nice to reach out to others and help.

"It feels wonderful, we realize that we'll be coming back time and time again to meet Emily and Richard and do things for them. We'll probably be back at Christmas and many, many more times," said Kelly Services Manager Deborah Jones.

Other sponsors of the house painting are Bacon Construction who supplied free paint, Jamison Bedding who donated two free beds sets to the couple, and Under the Moon Graphics who designed the T-shirts and hats.
