Fox Valley, WI


On May 4, Guardian helped make a difference in the life of one man from Fox Valley, WI.

Teaming up with Rebuilding Together, a local charitable organization, during their annual Spring Project Day initiative, Guardian volunteers from the local area revitalized the home of an Army and Air Force war veteran named Kenneth, whose wife, Shirley, passed away in 2011.

At age 85, Kenneth had trouble maintaining repairs to his home on his own, but with the help of his family, Guardian and Rebuilding Together, he’s been able to preserve the home he’s lived in for more than two decades.

“Kenneth is very grateful,” says Kate Dugan, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Fox Valley. “The help of volunteers like the people at Guardian is the reason we can do the work we do.”

This was the fifth year that Guardian’s Appleton office has participated in a Rebuilding Together event.
