Home make-over


A Berks County family has received a home makeover thanks to the generosity of others.

Volunteers from the Calvary Bible Church and the Wernersville community came together to redo the inside of the Harting residence.

The family's wife and mother, Donna, died in an accident inside the home at the end of the summer.

Volunteers decided to makeover the home for the family so they don't have the horrible reminder of her death.

"What a better way that when somebody else is grieving, and somebody else has gone through such a difficult situation, lets you know, help them to survive what they've gone through. And it was such a loss and her being so young," said volunteer Jennifer Mulberry.

Several businesses in the Wernersville area donated the materials for the makeover.
