“Thank you, brother”
A simple phrase that ignited long-time Six Day Project volunteer Ted Everingham, and allowed him to see firsthand how a simple act of service can make a difference in the community.
“Service has always been important to me”, says Ted, a semi-retired attorney in the Metropolitan Detroit area. He recalls, that his time active in Boy Scouts of America as a young child along with the influence of his parents is what set the gauge for his dedication to community service.
Ted learned about Life Remodeled and the Six Day Project during a church men’s meeting, where Founder and CEO Chris Lambert was guest speaker. After hearing Chris speak, he decided to volunteer during the Six Day Project, a weeklong blight and beautification project that took place that year in the Durfee community. A special encounter with a community member cemented in his brain the power and fulfillment of service.
