National Rebuilding Day
Each year on the last Saturday in April, National Rebuilding Day unites the largest nationwide group of volunteers from all walks of life to rehabilitate homes and community facilities and revitalize Peninsula communities. Our staff and AmeriCorps members support more than 3,000 volunteers in rehabilitating approximately 40-45 homes and 20-25 community centers.
Every project that we undertake is unique. Each work site comes with a different history, unique needs, its own scope of work, and a dedicated volunteer team. Once deployed, we do everything from yard cleanup and painting to skilled plumbing, window, electrical system, and flooring repair. We have even repaired or replaced roofs on homes and community facilities.
As we work to revitalize Peninsula communities, we also work hard to provide a positive volunteer experience for our sponsors, volunteers, and community partners. The result of year-long planning, evaluating, training, and organizing? A lasting impression and life-changing experience for our volunteers and the families and individuals that we help.
