7th Annual Whirlpool/IU Kelley Blitz Build a Success

220916_kellywhirlpoolbuild-664-7The home of future homeowners Jeff and Carla Wyatt was dedicated on October 1, 2016 at the Virgil T. DeVault Alumni Center, just across the street from IU’s Memorial Stadium.

We can’t believe how quickly the blitz build (sponsored by Whirlpool Corporation in partnership with the Kelley Institute for Social Impact and Indiana University) flew by!  All told 400 volunteers from Indiana University, the Bloomington community and Whirlpool Corporation pitched in to help construct Carla and Jeff’s home.  Jeff might have said it best:  “The last 10 days have been like a party – but one where your house looks better at the end.”

As always, we are incredibly grateful to everyone who worked so hard to make this build possible!
