Rebuilding Day Wrap-Up

A message from our Executive Director

Rebuilding Day 2013 took place on April 13, 2013. Early on a sunny Saturday morning, hundreds of volunteers arrived at 32 homes across the metro to make critical repairs for low-income, elderly homeowners. Homeowners bravely let us into their homes and lives and trusted us to make needed repairs. Volunteers replaced windows, rebuilt kitchens and bathrooms, and painted for hours upon hours. Together our volunteers worked approximately 7,125 hours!  The day culminated with a cook-out hosted by generous board members for tired but happy volunteers.

As we have checked in with the homeowners in the days following Rebuilding Day, 100% of them express satisfaction with the work done by volunteers and staff. Here are what a few of our homeowners had to say:



We should all feel a sense of satisfaction that these homeowners can now live safely in their own homes. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! Thanks to our donors, the Rebuilding Together OKC staff and board, and all of our volunteers for making our 22nd Rebuilding Day a success!
