Keller Williams of Dover, working with Milford Housing Development Corporation’s Home Repair Project May 8, stripped off old roof shingles of a widowed senior citizen’s home in Felton, replaced rotten underlayment, and re-shingled the entire roof. The volunteers also replaced a side door and steps. At another site in Dover, a second group of Keller Williams volunteers assisted a senior citizen homeowner with replacing rear steps and skirting on her mobile home.
