ONE DAY – A chance to help many

Only 3 weeks till our first BRS/Be A Tool Build day in Golden, CO and we have almost 40 volunteers on board!

NRP-logoThank you Neighborhood Rehab Project for organizing the event! Thank you volunteers for your interest and generous support!

Last week we had a chance to meet with the 5 home owners and learn more about their repair needs.   The projects range from painting and yard work to a full deck replacement and a new roof.   In only ONE DAY, we can help many live in a warmer, safer, dryer home.

This week we are very excited to reveal our official Build Day T-shirt design. Many thanks for those who participated in the t-shirt design competition – we had some creative ideas and it was tough to choose.  Congratulations to Mackenzie Manson for the extremely creative and literal “Be A Tool” image.  BRS-BeATool-TShirt-W2 Next update will share more about the official build day work plan.

Thanks for following.

This happens through facilitation from their parent organization Community Faith in Action and a partnership with the city of Golden. It is their vision to empower volunteers and homeowners to work together for the betterment of our community.
