It's Time for Rebuilding Together's
National Rebuilding Day April 30, 2011

For years the Carey Brothers have been avid supporters of Rebuilding Together. National Rebuilding Day is the annual signature event of Rebuilding Together, by bringing volunteers and communities together to rehabilitate the homes of low-income homeowners. Held on the last Saturday in April, it is the day when affiliates celebrate the organization’s mission.

National Rebuilding Day is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of thousands of community volunteers. It is embraced by community leaders and national corporate sponsors as a way of bringing immediate impact to America’s communities in a single day. On National Rebuilding Day volunteers and sponsors join local affiliates to repair and restore houses and non-profit facilities, revitalizing entire communities and making a lasting impression on the families who are served. Not only have we worked on projects, but have met the individuals whose lives have been impacted by all the caring volunteers of Rebuilding Together. Join us and thousands of volunteers on April 30, 2011 to make a difference.
