Monumental home makeover
SHELDON, N.Y. (WIVB) – – You’ve probably seen the home makeover shows where distressed families get major help reconstructing their homes. Now generous western New Yorkers have taken on a monumental makeover job themselves to help a family whose hero has already helped all of us.

There’s a beehive of activity underway at 1013 Centerline Road in the Wyoming County Town of Sheldon. What’s it all about?

Pete Andrews (Christian Youth Corps) said, “It’s all about bringing volunteers together to make a difference in Robert Toland’s life.”

Watch the video here, and enjoy the sight of regular people pitching in to help other people.  Beautiful.
