Oper­a­tion Fix-​It

1% Program


PHX Archi­tec­ture took a day out of the office to vol­un­teer with the City of Scottsdale’s Oper­a­tion Fix-​It. Michelle Holmes, Pro­gram Man­ager, started Oper­a­tion Fix-​It in an effort to help res­i­dents main­tain their prop­er­ties who oth­er­wise would not have the resources. The pro­gram helps res­i­dents with the upkeep of their homes with tasks such as land­scap­ing, paint­ing, minor repairs, and gen­eral spruc­ing up.

The PHX Team was excited to help Navy Vet­eran, Wayne, who has lived in his home since 1973. Wayne lives with his son in South Scotts­dale. The Team was tasked with pulling the weeds from the front and dig­ging out a short trench to level the lawn with the side­walk. We then spread rock through­out the yard. We also poured rock to cre­ate extra dri­ve­way space. A green­house was dis­man­tled in the back­yard and we did some gen­eral clean up. The rose bushes and front yard tree were trimmed and we planted new flow­ers and plants. Wayne had men­tioned his flag had been torn in a recent storm so we raised a new Amer­i­can flag and gifted Wayne with a Navy flag for his flag­pole. The team cre­ated a paver walk­way from the front porch to the side­walk and we replaced his porch sun­screen so he could sit out­side and enjoy the weather.

We were excited to also get a visit from Scottsdale’s Mayor Lane. Mayor Lane got to learn more about Wayne and check-​in on a pro­gram he sup­ports. It was a bit hot but a fun and ful­fill­ing afternoon!
