FALL REBUILDING DAY 2016: Gerritsen Beach
On Saturday, October 29th Rebuilding Together NYC will host Fall Rebuilding Day—the annual neighborhood rebuild event that occurs on the last Saturday of every October. This year, we are headed to the Hurricane Sandy-damaged neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn, where many residents continue to rebuild four years after the storm. Together with the support of corporate sponsors and volunteers, Rebuilding Together NYC will rebuild five homes, two community gardens, and install 100 solar-powered exterior lights on the exterior of homes. Help us rebuild Gerritsen Beach. Click here to learn how to sponsor a 2016 Fall Rebuilding Day home.
Serving all five New York City boroughs, Rebuilding Together NYC is a nonprofit housing organization that brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income New Yorkers. Together we transform lives by improving the safety and health of New York City homes and revitalizing our communities. We provide critical home repairs, with particular programs for those who are elderly, disabled, families with children, veterans, and survivors of natural disasters. Rebuilding Together NYC also trains low-income, underemployed and unemployed individuals in the skills necessary to obtain employment in the construction industry. All of our services are provided at no cost to our homeowners and community members.
