Do Something About It: Rebuilding Happiness
on March 5, 2009
If you’re looking for a project that will have a sure and immediate impact on someone’s quality of life, you might be interested in Rebuilding Together, a non-profit committed to improving the lives of low-income senior citizens and disabled persons through free repair work or improvements to their homes. Next month is National Rebuilding Day, when volunteers nationwide spend two days rehabbing homes in a blitz of positive and transformative work. Whether it’s installing grab bars, fixing leaky roof, or doing office work, your help is needed. The neighborhoods being served are Albany, Berkeley, and Emeryville. Please sign up immediately if you’re interested because orientations are being held this month.
