PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - A Pendleton home is sporting a fresh coat of paint brushed on by dozens of volunteers in response to a local man’s Facebook post.

The East Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1gKaEHU) 35-year-old Josh Cyganik says he decided to help when he overheard two kids say someone should burn down the dilapidated house of Leonard and Dorothy Bullock, both in their 70s.

The house was covered in chipping paint and needed a number of other repairs.

Paint and supplies were donated by companies including Tum-A-Lum Lumber, Pendleton Bottling, Doug’s Septic and Sherwin-Williams. With the Bullocks’ permission, Cyganik put the call for help on Facebook.

Cyganik estimated 100 volunteers showed up throughout Saturday.

Dorothy said the community’s response meant a lot, and Leonard said he was grateful for the help.
