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 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, nearly 200 volunteers will refresh BEAMING Inc., which provides equine-assisted programming to diverse populations of the Fox Valley. If your company would like to partner and collaborate on projects like this in the future, contact Chip Wood, Executive Director, at email@example.com, or 920-730-2156.
