National Rebuilding Together Event

April 27th - April 29th, 2018

Use Affiliate Group: CCIA

Together, we can transform the lives of our neighbors in need!

CCIA Volunteers always step up and volunteer for this wonderful event.  For close to 15 years CCIA Members have helped rehab homes for the Elderly, Handicapped, and Veterans.  Participants have generally come away from the project feeling like they have worked hard & made a difference - as well as learning new skills & making new friends!  We've survived pouring rain, insufficient supplies and much more, but always come up with creative ways to complete our projects!

Rehab skills are appreciated, but not necessary!

Material donations and financial donations to cover material costs for the various projects are deeply appreciated!!!

Consider Being a House Captain!

For those of you interested in really becoming involved, consider becoming a House Captain or Co-Captain!  You must have basic knowledge of the working systems within a home, strong leadership skills, and be able to run the project from start to finish.  PDF of House Captain / Co-Captain Roles
