This Saturday, more than 1,000 volunteers from 40 Bay Area companies will help rebuild homes, schools and other community facilities as part of the 21st annual National Rebuilding Day.
“During these bleak economic times, when individual and foundation contributions are declining, we are so grateful for the continuing support of some of the Bay Area’s largest employers,” said Karen Nemsick, executive director, Rebuilding Together San Francisco, a local nonprofit. “Because they care about their less fortunate neighbors, we are able to maintain the number of much-needed rebuilding projects that we and our dedicated volunteer crews undertake on Rebuilding Day.
The San Francisco event is part of National Rebuilding Day, during which thousands of volunteers will carry out rebuilding projects in more than 500 communities across America. In the Bay Area, Rebuilding Together affiliates, supported by 184 sponsors and nearly 9,000 volunteers, will undertake repairs to a total of 127 homes and 55 schools and community facilities, according to the organization.
