Rebuilding Together

The Junior League of Seattle is proud to be part of National Rebuilding Day, where volunteers from around the nation will come together to rehabilitate the homes of more than 2,000 low-income homeowners. In the Seattle area alone, there will be approximately 30 projects! As a volunteer on National Rebuilding Together Day, your efforts will have a national impact by providing a safer, healthier, and happier environment for these homeowners. (If you’d like to learn more about National Rebuilding day and/or Rebuilding Together Seattle – check out their website at www.rtseattle.org.)

Saturday, April 28th

7:30am – 4:30pm
6812 South 124th Street
Seattle, WA 98178
**Look for balloons as well as a Rebuilding Together sign out front.**

The homeowners you will be having a direct impact on are Tamera and Lou LeCroy. They are a couple living in the Skyway neighborhood of South Seattle. Some of the work for Tamera and Lou that we will be helping out with include: exterior painting, light carpentry work (with help from experts), and lots of yard work.

We have two separate shifts available for 1 service shift credit each:

AM Shift – 7:30am – 12:00pm
PM Shift – 12:00pm – 4:30pm

All volunteers are welcome to come and work for the full day. If you intend to stay for the full day, please make sure that you RSVP for both service shifts via the website so that you will get 2 credits for staying the entire time. If you are bringing friends and family to help work for the day, please send an e-mail to Anna Ferris at annaf2@gmail.com letting her know you’ll be bringing extra helpers!

In preparation for the event next week we want to provide you all with helpful details that will make the day run smoothly. Please visit our Rebuilding Together event website for the location, directions, appropriate dress attire, waivers to sign and bring with you to the event, yard work tool requests, and misc. info.
