By Nicole Darrah, Fox News

A Korean War veteran struggling to get by can now breathe a sigh of relief after a group of around 100 volunteers in the Phoenix area spent a day helping renovate his home.

Jordan Dancer, 83, told Fox 10 about the financial struggles that weighed on his life.

“I had so much stress in my life because I just didn’t know what to do,” Dancer said, adding that “sometimes, I hated for the mail to arrive because it was just bills.”

His home and yard was spruced up by Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit that gives free repairs to affordable homes for those in need. The organization’s director of construction operations, Jeremiah Churchill, said volunteers painted Dancer’s home and weeded his yard.
