Volunteers seeking donation of ladders

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- Volunteers who provide home repairs for low-income elderly and disabled residents are seeking the donation of ladders to held them with their efforts.

Waterloo City Council member Quentin Hart, who brought the program, "From the Heart: Waterloo Home Enhancement," to the city three years ago, says volunteers need about 100 ladders.

The program is returning for a third summer, with a more skilled work force and plans to renovate up to 60 homes around the community.

The project will cast a wider net by helping eligible homeowners in various sections of Waterloo, and possibly tackle more difficult repairs than in past efforts.

About 400 youth volunteers from around the country are expected to be in Waterloo on July 19 through July 25.
