Volunteers, Sponsors, and Homeowners Needed for Rebuilding Together Alexandria's National Rebuilding Day

Clubs and Organizations

March 13, 2015


What

Rebuilding Together Alexandria is seeking limited income, elderly, veteran, and disabled homeowners who need help maintaining their homes for repair projects during National Rebuilding Day as well as volunteers and sponsors to help fix and maintain the homes of these vulnerable Alexandria, Va. residents. With support from Booz Allen Hamilton and Wells Fargo, more than 800 volunteers will restore and upgrade homes for residents during this nationwide Rebuilding Together initiative. New this year, volunteers will be working on renovating and beautifying a whole residential block.

Why

With the help of funders and volunteers, Rebuilding Together Alexandria works to preserves housing affordability and revitalizes the Alexandria community by providing free safe and healthy home repairs. These upgrades are important since most of Rebuilding Together Alexandria's clients live near the poverty level. Rebuilding Together Alexandria has worked on more than 1,800 projects in Alexandria since its inception more than 28 years ago, improving the lives of thousands.

When

Sponsor and volunteer deadline is April 10 for this April 25, 2015 event.

Where

Locations all over Alexandria.

How

Teams of volunteers will make home improvements, such as repairing windows and doors, replacing cabinets, installing grab bars and safety rails, painting, doing yard work, installing smoke detectors, building raised vegetable gardens, and weatherizing.
