Merry Christmas From TEDRD!

We would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday this Christmas. Many of our homeowners will also be able to enjoy their holidays in newly refinished homes thanks to your volunteer efforts.

We will be taking a break over the holidays in order for our diverse staff to spend time with their families around the country. We will resume work on Jan. 4th and continue through the rest of 2010 repairing homes in Galveston so that next Christmas, more families can enjoy the holidays.

We hope to see you again in the future. Volunteers are our greatest commodity.

We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
