I hope 2022 is off to a healthy start for you and your loved ones. Despite the challenges we all face, there is much to be grateful for, not the least of which is non-profits like Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP) who are working hard to ensure we have safe, thriving communities, even in the midst of a pandemic.
This year I’ve donned a new hat, that of the Board Chair for RTP. While I’m no stranger to the agency, having been a volunteer and Board member for many years, this role brings a fresh challenge for me, one I’m excited to tackle. Under the steady leadership of Melissa Lukin, the team at RTP has not only been surviving, they have been thriving! Adapting to our current reality wasn’t easy but RTP has strengthened an already solid foundation. Now we’re ready to keep building!
National Rebuilding Day (NRD) is around the corner and we’re anticipating a very successful day of impact, with an emphasis on outdoor projects that will provide corporate and community volunteers with the kind of safe and powerful team-building experience the community has come to expect from us, while also making more homes and community spaces accessible and safer as well. Like many people, I’ve had my fill of Zoom calls and virtual meetings. A fix-it guy at my core, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work! If your organization is looking for a deeper connection with the community, I urge you to consider sponsoring or volunteering for NRD.
Keeping people and communities safe is at the heart of RTP’s mission– and it’s something that inspires me every day. I hope this is the first of many times I’m able to express my profound gratitude to you, the RTP community of donors, sponsors, volunteers, and homeowners who care about and support our work and keep that mission alive. You’re an essential part of our strong foundation.
All the best,
