This week Project Mend-A-House (PMAH) held their 17th annual “Taste of the Town” fundraiser in Dale City.
The non-profit provides home repair and medical assistive services to individuals in need in the Prince William-area, primarily the elderly, disabled, veterans, and low-income individuals.

The event, sponsored by NOVEC, NOVEC Helps, NRECA, Alliant Wealth Advisors, Ready Hands Home Care, Jabs Construction, John and Ernestine Jenkins, and Didlake offered attendees to try food offerings from more than a dozen area restaurants.
In the past year, PMAH has completed 600 home repair services, safety fixes, and accessibility tasks, helped 150 low-income Prince William residents, and their volunteers donated more than 5,000 hours of service, which they valuated at worth around $130,000.
During the event, Supervisor John Jenkins was recognized for his service to the community, and was given the Lily Blackwell Lifetime Community Service Award.
“I can’t think of anyone that compares to John Jenkins, and how he has spent his time. His lifetime of countless achievements – both personally and professionally – are beyond compare,” said JoEllen Benson, a board member for PMAH.
