Dozens Of Homes Get Facelift Through ‘Rebuilding Together’ Project

DETROIT (WWJ) – More than 1,000 volunteers turned out Saturday to help low income homeowners live better. Those who participated in the “Rebuilding Together Oakland County” event gave 45 homes a facelift.

Volunteers cleaned yards, trimmed hedges, installed stoves — and performed other home improvement tasks, to help those less fortunate have a safe place to call home.

Gale Frazey, Vice President of Rebuilding Together Oakland Count spoke with WWJ Newsradio 950 about the event.

“They are scraping paint, they are cleaning yards, they are trimming hedges … pouring concrete and on goes the list,” said Frazey.

“The homeowners we work with, typically, are single – probably not able to keep up (the) large home they have and so this helps a lot of them to have a safe and comfortable home maintained for them out of the goodness of the hearts of neighbors.”

Rebuild Oakland County is part of national organization based in Washington D.C. — with about 200 affiliates across the country.
