April is National Rebuilding Month !
Rebuilding Together is a national movement that transforms thousands of homes across the country each year.
Rebuilding Together North Jersey (RTNJ) brings financial resources and materials from generous corporate sponsors and donors together with hundreds of volunteers to assist our low-income neighbors in communities throughout Bergen and Passaic Counties.
It takes much more than a day to transform our project homes. Months of house evaluations, selections, planning, budgeting, developing work scopes and recruiting volunteers culminate in a month of repairing homes and rebuilding lives.
“Prep” workdays take place each weekend in April (and sometimes weekdays) before National Rebuilding Day. Skilled trades volunteers in areas including carpentry, electrical, masonry, plumbing and roofing pitch in to ensure that the project homes are ready for hundreds of volunteers who will come together as neighbors helping neighbors on National Rebuilding Day.
National Rebuilding Day is held on the last Saturday in April – rain or shine!
April 29th was National Rebuilding Day 2017. RTNJ chose 10 projects located in Elmwood Park, Emerson, Hackensack, Mahwah, Paterson, Ridgewood, Teaneck and Westwood. To learn more about that great day, click here.
