How was Rebuilding Together?

I talked to Andrea from Rebuilding Together last week and she let me know there were a number of you there because you had read about it on my blog. One of the reasons I chose a blog as a web resource for volunteer opportunities was because of the ability to provide candid reviews about the organizations with which I volunteer. One way to extend that resource is by having your comments.

Did you go? How was it? would you do it again? Did you have a donut? A bagel? Were the volunteers friendly? The home owners? Who else are you volunteering with?

Speaking of which, I'll be out with the RT people this Saturday but CAF is looking for volunteers at the same time. Krisann needs people to lead high school students through a sketching session from 9:30-3:00 as part of her Saturdays in the Studio program. If you want to get involved or you're even a little curious there's a planning meeting this Wednesday at 12:30 at CAF, Suite 430.

Please comment.


  1. Thank you to all of the volunteers who have stepped out to lend a hand at House Selection over the past few weeks! We are always impressed with the group of generous, civic-minded people who gather together on Saturday mornings to meet homeowners for our program. It's been a pleasure meeting all of you and I look forward to working with you more in the future!

    Even though House Selection is about to come to a close, we would still welcome any volunteers who would like to shadow an experienced volunteer for a morning to learn more about Rebuilding Together and the work we do.

    Thank you Steve for spreading the word and keeping everyone up to date and informed!

  2. I'm an RT "veteran". Absolutely love the program. Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting two newer volunteers to go around previewing houses in Berwyn. We had a great time meeting sweet little old ladies. We especially loved our first one, Ms. Betty. She was a hoot! and gave us all hugs before we left. What a sweetheart.
