GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - On Saturday, April 28, hundreds of volunteers for Rebuilding Twin Cities will swing hammers and pound nails to provide critical home repair services for 20 homeowners living in north Minneapolis, including seven homes that were damaged by the tornado last year.
Volunteers will address critical repairs at these homes and will focus on increasing the warmth, safety and independence of the homeowner. These repairs are provided at no cost to the homeowner.
Each year, on the last Saturday in April, Rebuilding Together affiliates across the country come together to make repairs for thousands of homeowners on "National Rebuilding Day." National Rebuilding Day is an opportunity to make a larger impact in a neighborhood by helping multiple homeowners in need on one day.
"National Rebuilding Day really captures the spirit of what we do," said Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, Kathy Greiner. "Rebuilding Day is about neighbors helping neighbors and the community coming together to help homeowners in need stay in the homes and neighborhoods they love."
Individuals interested in volunteering for National Rebuilding Day can email Rebuilding Together Twin Cities at firstname.lastname@example.org .
