LAKE FOREST, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Professional Community Management of California, Inc. (PCM) presented the Lake Forest Community Association's Community Spirit Team with a matching $300 gift to help residents who demonstrate a financial hardship to complete home repairs that put them in jeopardy with the association's rules. The work began on the team's first "heart-ship" case, Patrice Munday on May 14 with the pouring of the cement base with donated work from professional contractor Al Grecco.
On the kick-off day, Friday, May 18, volunteers and the PCM Field Services team removing rotting beams and a brick pilaster and tossing the debris into a donated Waste Management dumpster. They fixed everything up and painted with donated Behr paint, then planted new roses and geraniums donated by the El Toro Road Home Depot in Lake Forest and the association's Garden Club. All other materials were also graciously donated by the Home Depot.

David Glick, President of the Lake Forest Community Association not only got to work, but he also personally accepted a check from Donny Disbro.
"I'm amazed and grateful for the generosity PCM and everyone involved with the Community Spirit Team," Munday said. "I've lived here for 11 years and this is home for me and my children. I don't think I'd live anywhere else."
