Houses transformed by Rebuilding Together

Saturday, April 26, 2008

This house on Beveridge Street will have a completely new look after Saturday when about 50 members of the Rebuilding Together organization go to work on it. There will be over 200 volunteers working at five locations locally on Saturday.
A home on Beveridge Street will undergo a complete transformation Saturday when 50 members of Rebuilding Together start work on it.

The Rebuilding Together organization is made up of five churches and other community volunteers who help fix up homes for elderly citizens.

For people with leaky roofs or other home repair needs beyond what they can accomplish on their own, the Rebuilding Together network offers a constructive fix.

"We do all our work absolutely free of charge for qualified homeowners," says Pastor Tom Woodley of the Owen/Putnam chapter of the nationwide organization.

Five other projects will be going on that same day with a total of nearly 200 volunteers working across the area.

Rebuilding Together has 12 chapters in Indiana. The volunteer group typically will work on rebuilding homes on the last Saturday in April. Its main office is located in Washington, D.C. The program began in Midland, Texas, in 1973.

Anyone wanting to be considered by Rebuilding Together can call Greencastle Christian Church at 653-5816 or contact Woodley at Grace Lutheran Church at 795-3214.
