This past Saturday, I participated in the 22nd Annual Spring Rebuilding Day organized by Rebuilding Together Seattle. Every year, on the last Saturday in April, Rebuilding Together Seattle partners with corporate sponsors and over 1,500 volunteers to repair 25 homes in one day. Rebuilding Together Seattle brings volunteers and communities together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety and independence.
Along with the Junior League of Seattle (the Junior League helped establish Rebuilding Together Seattle back in 1989) and nearly 100 other volunteers, I spent the day working on the home of a lovely gentleman named Clarence.
The enthusiasm was high and the effort intense on this all day project. I enjoyed the smiles and teamwork. And I recognize and respect the planning that takes place over many meetings. Volunteers ask for donations to support the project and drive all over the city in search of supplies and food. It all comes together on this ONE day.
