The Rebuilding Together CapacityCorps (an AmeriCorps program) team members from 2012-2013 have been nominated for Corporation for National and Community Service‘s Service Impact Award for their service during Rebuilding Together’s CapacityCorps MLK Week. The 2013 Service Impact Awards recognize outstanding contributions made by programs of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
In partnership with Rebuilding Together OKC, members of the Rebuilding Together CapacityCorps dedicated the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service to rebuilding homes and revitalizing communities in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For MLK Work Week, AmeriCorps members serving with Rebuilding Together came together from 20 different states to perform critical home repair services for veteran and senior citizen homeowners in-need. The CapacityCorps, serving a collective 3,000 hours, repaired nine homes with the help of area high school students and community members, in the Carverdale-Edwards-South Creston Hills (The C-E-C triangle) area in Oklahoma City.
