Rebuilding Together Nashville: Building A Healthy Neighborhood
Rebuilding Together Nashville, in conjunction with its National Office, will host the fourth annual Building A Healthy Neighborhood event. This event, previously held in Philadelphia, Denver, and Columbus, Ohio, is an intensive three-day weekend designed to impact as many homes as possible in one neighborhood. Volunteers from around the country will come together in Nashville May 29th, 30th and 31st to remodel 20-25 homes in the Cleveland and McFerrin Park neighborhoods. These homes are inhabited by low-income families and often elderly homeowners, and require maintenance and renovation at a variety of scales. In conjunction with the event, volunteers will install a community playground and add life to the neighborhood by landscaping, creating community gardens and providing other services.
Rebuilding Together is sponsored by Lowe’s, Assurant, Crate and Barrel, Choice Hotels, HGTV and DIY networks, TV personality Carter Oosterhouse and his charity, Carter’s Kids, and the National Healthy Homes Conference, sponsored by HUD.
Tuck-Hinton Architects will be volunteering at this event, and we’re still actively recruiting any help we can get! House Captains, skilled or licensed professionals and volunteers are still needed for the three-day event. Participants can anticipate a wide variety of tasks which will range anywhere from working a snack and water table, to painting and landscaping, to larger-scale construction tasks at each of the homes. If anyone is interested in volunteering, contact Nashville’s Rebuilding Together Office at (615) 297-3955, visit their ‘Get Involved’ Page or email Mary Melissa Yohn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
