The Junior League of Seattle has a long-standing partnership with Rebuilding Together Seattle, an organization that provides free home repairs for low income homeowners (specifically elderly, disabled, families with children, and veterans in need). This spring, the ladies of the League came together with their friends and family to help one Seattle citizen get her home in tip-top shape. It was a gorgeous day with perfect weather for home renovations and lots of smiles and laughter.
In a little over 8 hours, a group of 20+ volunteers peeled paint, repainted, did yard work, installed a drainage system in the yard, repainted the living room, installed several new windows, retiled the bathroom, and so much more. We were able to support a long-time community partner and make an impact thanks to our members, the Done-in-a-Day committee, Rebuilding Together leaders, and volunteer contractors.
It was exciting to see just how much could be accomplished in one day!
