WASHINGTON, Pa. —

With the help of several Steelers alumni, a Washington Army veteran’s home received some much-needed repairs.

Former Steelers Larry Brown, Gerry Mullins and Pete Rostosky joined volunteers on Saturday to make improvements to the Locust Avenue home of Charles Staley.

Staley, who joined the United States Army 6th Armored Division in 1952, has lived in the home for 85 years.

“It is beyond words. Webster doesn't have enough words to even express how I feel,” said Staley.

Renovations to Staley’s home were done through a partnership between the Steelers and 84 Lumber with Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh.

Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh repairs and renovates the homes of low-income, elderly homeowners and individuals with physical disabilities.
