Have you ever changed a life before lunch? If not, now is your opportunity!
Rebuilding Together Fox Valley provides critical home modifications and repairs for low-income neighbors in need from Outagamie, Calumet, Winnebago, and Waupaca Counties, at no cost to them. Our largest impact event is National Rebuilding Day, where we partner with businesses and their respective volunteer groups to address the needs of numerous homeowners in a single day.
But our work does not stop there! Rebuilding Together Fox Valley serves homeowners year-round. I am pleased to announce the launch of Second Saturdays. On the Second Saturday of each month, we will meet to address the needs of one or several homeowners in need.
Volunteers will meet at 8:00AM, at a predetermined location, and work until 12:00 pm, completing as many home modifications and repairs as possible in the timeframe allocated. We will provide all of the tools, materials, as well as an onsite House Captain, to provide leadership/direction, to complete the project successfully.

National Rebuilding Month originated in 1973 in Midland, Texas with volunteers helping neighbors rebuild their homes. The group founded Rebuilding Together, at the time called “Christmas in April,” and gathered around a month of service each year in April. The mission then grew beyond the idea of providing service one month per year to bringing volunteers together to provide neighbors in need with critical repairs year-round.
When you hear the word "home," what comes to mind? For some of our neighbors, “home” does not mean a sense of security, belonging and happy memories. It instead means uncertainty, isolation and hopelessness. With the help of volunteers year-round volunteers, we’re changing this reality by repairing homes, revitalizing communities and rebuilding lives. We are working to ensure safe homes and communities for everyone.
On this day, over 100+ volunteers will gather in the West Appleton Neighborhood to make over 174 modifications and repairs to 13 homes. If your company would like to partner and collaborate on projects like this in the future, contact Brent Bowman, Development & Outreach Manager, at Brent@rtfv.org or 920-730-2156.
