24th National Rebuilding Day A Success!

24th National Rebuilding Day A Success!

My first call about Ms. Ernestine and Mr. Robert’s home was nearly a year ago from Reva Trammell, 8th District Councilwoman. Their kitchen sink had fallen through to the floor and water was everywhere. This family really needed help, but there was so much to do. In fact, this was a much bigger job than we could normally afford. But with the determination of staff, Journey Christian Church volunteers and generous support from Lowe's, we were able to do an “extreme makeover” for this family during our recent National Rebuilding Day (and a few days before and after)! I still get chills when I look at the before and after pictures of this project. This was only one of nearly 40 homes that received critical repairs during our 24th Annual National Rebuilding Day along the Jefferson Davis corridor. It was a great day and would not have been possible without the generous support from all our partners. ((Click Here to View Pictures from NRD 2016!))

Last September's Partner Build a Success!

Last September's Partner Build a Success!

Throughout the year we partner with local companies to make minor repairs to a few homes in our target area prior to our National Rebuild Day. In September 2014, we partnered with Mitchell, Wiggins & Co., to make repairs to a home in the Swansboro area. Over 15 volunteers participated in the project, including the homeowner's friends and family - eager to take the project by storm!
