TAMPA, FL – Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay (RTTB) is celebrating National Rebuild Day early this year. Between March and April, the local non-profit housing developer will repair and improve living conditions in 48 homes in the historic neighborhood of Sulphur Springs.
National Rebuild Day is an annual event that brings together Rebuilding Together affiliates nationwide with thousands of community volunteers to provide free home repairs and modifications for low-income Americans – senior citizens, persons with disabilities, military veterans and families in need.
In Tampa, however, the festivities began on March 1 with volunteers from United Rentals installing healthy home kits (full of health and safety products) in 5 homes. On March 7 volunteers from Faith Tampa Bay installed a wheelchair ramp and painted 2 additional homes. Today, March 11, volunteers from the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) will install healthy home kits in 4 homes and make neighborhood improvements. This event will take place on the 8600 block of Mulberry Street in Sulphur Springs.
All of these events are building to a crescendo celebration event.
On Saturday, April 30, RTTB will bring together over 300 volunteers to improve 38 homes including Healthy Home Kits, exterior painting, and landscaping and neighborhood improvements.
RTTB and its partners will also hold a Community Resource Fair providing health, safety and educational information to area residents, including free wellness checks and a food truck rally.
This work is part of the ongoing transformation of historic Sulphur Springs that RTTB is undertaking as part of its Building a Healthier Sulphur Springs Project.
