Each year, low-income older adults or disabled people, and families with small children struggle to make repairs to their homes due to financial hardship or physical limitations. As a result, their living conditions may be exposed to the elements or become unsafe. Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit 501(c)3, solicits funds and materials, and matches them with volunteers who perform the home repairs.
Last fall, Washington Masonic Charities worked with the Rebuilding Together South Sound affiliate on their Rampathon event. It was a success! WAMC decided to expand to three locations this year in support of the big annual Rebuilding Together Day. WAMC is rallying Brothers in three areas of the state to volunteer in service of community members in need.
WAMC is sponsoring the houses, which pays for the materials and supports an organization whose focus is helping low-income seniors live safely and with dignity in their own home.
This is a great opportunity for Brothers to work hand in hand in service of another. Participation also brings wonderful community visibility. Participating Brothers will be fed in the morning and at noon. They will also receive a T-shirt and will meet the homeowner. This is a wonderful opportunity for Brothers to join us in partnership with Rebuilding Together affiliates in the following counties:
Saturday, April 23rd Spokane County
Saturday, April 30th Pierce County
Saturday, April 30th Thurston County
To register to volunteer, call Byron Cregeur, 253-442-2505, Ext. 404.
Washington Masonic Charities’ Masonic Outreach Services, such as this month’s Rebuilding project, are funded through the Grand Lodge, private trusts and foundations, and generous individual donors.
