Marlborough – Residents at the city's elderly housing units at 29 Pleasant St. are delighted with the improvements made by a team of workers from The Home Depot who spent an entire day landscaping, power washing, and performing other duties contributing to the cleanliness and beautification of the complex.
Doug Bushman is the housing director.
“This is the second time in two months that Marlborough Home Depot has helped us,” Bushman said. “First they provided assistance to our residents during the March fire and now we have new landscaping; with the power washing, the buildings have a much more pleasing look.”
Bushman expressed gratitude to Valerie Wilkinson, who works for both Home Depot and Marlborough Housing, overseeing State Elderly Programs, and was instrumental in making it all happen.
“On behalf of the residents of Pleasant Street, I want to thank Marlborough Home Depot Manager Michelle Keohane and all the staff of Home Depot for coming out to help Marlborough Housing make the Pleasant Street apartments an even more enjoyable place to live,” Bushman said.
Mayor Arthur Vigeant issued a public statement of appreciation and recognition to Home Depot “for its consistent dedication and commitment to the city of Marlborough and its residents and enhancing the quality of life for the residents of the Pleasant Street Elderly Housing community.”
