NeighborWorks Columbus introduces 6th cottage recipient

Posted: Updated:

Neighborworks Columbus is once again giving a local resident a better place to call home.

82-year-old Mary Alice Cooper Jenkins is the 6th recipient of a new home provided by the Columbus Cottage Program.

A demolition ceremony will be held August 8 at 11 a.m. when her home on 43rd Street will be removed during the ceremony to make room for her new cottage.

Jenkins says she is excited for her new home. "Oh, I love it," she says. "I'm so excited, I don't know what to do. I love it, and I want to thank each and every one."

Columbus Cottage Program Chairs Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and Susan Milligan were there to present the new recipient with her keys this morning, August 1.
