On Saturday, August 17th, Continental Cares and the Revitalize MKE team helped over 20 homes in Milwaukee during the annual Revitalize MKE Block Build. Continental sponsored a building owned by an elderly couple who have lived there for the past 14 years. The work consisted of scraping and repainting windows, sealing windows, installing grab bars, rebuilding balconies, and adding some much needed landscaping amongst many other tasks throughout the day. All tasks had a singular goal - to provide repairs and updates to make the couple's living experience safe in order for them to continue to live at their residence.
