National Rebuilding Day
National Rebuilding Day is the annual signature event of Rebuilding Together, the leading national nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership by bringing volunteers and communities together to rehabilitate the homes of low-income homeowners. The goal of our home renovation projects is to keep families warm, safe, and dry.
Held on the last Saturday in April, National Rebuilding Day is the day when affiliates from all parts of the country plan projects to celebrate the organization’s mission and to bring national attention to the plight of America’s low-income homeowners and the communities in which they live. National Rebuilding Day is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of thousands of community volunteers. It is embraced by community leaders and national corporate sponsors as a way of bringing immediate impact to America’s communities in a single day.
On National Rebuilding Day volunteers join local affiliate leaders to repair and restore houses and non-profit facilities, revitalizing entire communities and making a lasting impression on the families who are served. For many volunteers, it leaves them with the experiences of helping their neighbors in need, which brings them back year after year.
Fall Rebuilding Day
Held on the fourth Saturday of October to align with Make a Difference Day. RTDC expanded our Rebuilding Day program to the fall in 2008 in an effort to serve more homeowners throughout the year. During this time, we are able to serve a portion of our annual applicants that we were unable to accept as National Rebuilding Day projects.
The application period for these rebuilding days runs from July-September for the following year projects. A printable application along with all instructions will be available on the website beginning in July.
