POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – The project was much smaller, but still a dream come true for homeowners who are also foster parents.
On Saturday, volunteers with the Regional Council of Carpenters built a fence for Mark and Kendra Wirtz of Poland. They have four kids of their own, but also foster two young brothers with special needs.
Kendra said every time her kids would go outside, she feared for their safety.
“We live on a very busy main street with streets on both sides running parallel and we really feel like we couldn’t take them outside to play like average kids do,” Kendra Wirtz said. “We really saw a need for a fence that they could come out and play and have a good time.”
Kendra added that the fence came as a surprise. It was donated thru the efforts of the Mahoning County Children Services.
