Held on the last Saturday of April each year, rebuilding day works with corporate sponsors, churches, civic groups, and businesses to sponsor the renovation of an elderly homeowner’s property. These homeowners are selected based on income, need of project, current on taxes on their property. We then match volunteers to the skill needed for the renovations. These projects vary from highly skilled such as installing windows or bathrooms to low skill such as painting and cleaning debris. Over 1,000 volunteers participate in this project yearly.
