Rebuilding Day 2017: April 29
National Rebuilding Day, the last Saturday in April each year, is the annual culmination of activities at Rebuilding Together, a national network of local affiliates providing critical renovations and modifications to the homes of low-income Americans at no-cost to the homeowners.
Now in its 22nd year, Rebuilding Together Omaha will leverage the investments of volunteers, donors and supporters to make significant home repairs that stabilize neighborhoods, strengthen the tax base and allow elderly homeowners to age-in-place.
Once again, businesses, nonprofits and foundations will partner with Rebuilding Together Omaha to provide repairs and improvements to homes owned by elderly or disabled citizens. We’ll be making external improvements and safety repairs, all while providing resources like dumpsters and volunteers to the entire neighborhood.
Want to get involved but don’t know where to start? We are in need of financial contributions to support the purchase of materials for the work to be completed. We will also begin recruiting volunteers in January of 2017. Please consider donating and volunteering to support this important work.
If you would like to volunteer or donate for other projects, please contact us.
If you have a construction background or are handy, volunteering is a great way to keep your skills sharp and give back to the community.
We also need volunteers with a wide range of skills throughout the year. Can you rake or shovel? Do painting prep work? Use hand tools, like hammers handsaws, and drills? If so—you’re qualified!
Opportunities for Groups
We provide opportunities to invest in neighborhoods and create healthy communities that we all want to share. Volunteer a team, sponsor projects, provide materials, and work onsite through RTO’s Team Build and National Rebuilding Day programs. Each sponsorship enables us to serve another homeowner.
RTO sponsorship provides community-minded companies and their employees, foundations, service organizations, and congregations with an opportunity to serve the community while building a positive association with a nonprofit that holds a long, successful history in Omaha neighborhoods.
