The Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce put together a team of local business professionals to do some work in the community. It's part of a "Leadership Green Bay" class.

The group worked to make the dining and living room at Freedom House better for homeless families who stay there.

"We were tearing up carpeting, repainting the walls. We got the opportunity to take down some old wallpaper, which was a lot more work than I thought it was going to be," Paul Klinkhammer, an assistant store director for Festival Foods, said.

JJ Martin provided the carpet, and the team received donations to pay for the rest of the materials.

They have $4,000 left over, which will be used to give Freedom House new windows.
