Rebuilding Together Richmond (RT RVA) celebrated 30 years of service and toasted to 30 more last Tuesday at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery.
Volunteers, board members, homeowners, donors, and staff - past and present - came together to reflect and commemorate RT RVA's impact in the community since it was founded in 1992 as Christmas In April.
Ms. Mary, one of our program recipients, shared her story with other ReBuilders at the event. She mentioned that she was fortunate that her old furnace lasted for thirty years but that "when it went, it went!"
Ms. Laverne, another recipient, stated that she "felt like it was just a blessing pouring in" after contractors repaired her dilapidated bathroom floor.
Both homeowners were very grateful for the help as these costly repairs were out of their reach.
