Rebuilding Together, funded by donations from large corporations, small businesses, and public and private nonprofit organizations, each year harnesses its army of volunteers for its “National Rebuilding Day,” the last Saturday in April, to descend on a community to improve the homes and communities of low-income residents.
“Having Chicago Heights adopted by Rebuilding Together as a beneficiary of its generosity from its donors and volunteers is deeply appreciated by our residents,” said Gonzalez. “Personally, I want to thank Rebuilding Together and its volunteers for their contribution to help repair the homes of some members of our community.”
Since 1991, Rebuilding Together has repaired over 1,600 homes and 250 nonprofit facilities.
In addition to the 17 home repair projects, an additional five to seven Chicago Heights homes will benefit from Rebuilding Together’s “Safe at Home” modification improvement program that includes the installation of smoke alarms, grab bars, etc.
