KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A bank and a non-profit group teamed up Tuesday to help a Northland family in need of serious home repairs.

Rebuilding Together out of Liberty helps low income families and thanks to a grant from Wells Fargo, they were able to provided much needed repairs to a home off Parvin and Chaumiere Roads.

The siding was rotting and inside, and the husband's wheelchair kept pulling up the carpet. Due to mounting medical bills, the family couldn't afford to fix their house.

The couple says they reached out to Rebuilding Together, and Tuesday a dozen volunteers showed up to replace the siding and putting down laminate flooring.

"You think it's not going to happen, and then it does," homeowner Sharon Mingucci said. "I wasn't going to do that. But it's, words can't say how grateful I am."

"Our vision as an organization is a safe and happy home for every person, and it's an ambitious one, but it's one we continually work towards," Rebuilding Together executive director Clay McQuerry said. "So we're very excited to be able to help her out since it's obvious she really needs some assistance."
