Rebuilding Together Arlington/Fairfax/Falls Church and Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers complete renovations for Arlington homeowners on June 16.
Rebuilding Together Arlington/Fairfax/Falls Church provided repairs on June 16 to the home of a senior couple living in Arlington, allowing them to age in place.
More than 30 volunteers from Rebuilding Together and Lowe’s addressed health and safety repairs including repairing windows and installing storm windows to reduce heating and cooling cost, installing interior and exterior railings and grab bars to prevent falls, replacing dryer vent duct to prevent fires, plumbing and electrical repairs, and more, all as part of a $15,000 grant from Lowe’s.
Last fall, Lowe’s awarded $450,000 to 33 Rebuilding Together affiliates to assist low-income homeowners across the country. Since the partnership began in 2007, Lowe’s has contributed more than $12 million and the support of 3,000 Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to revitalize communities and help nearly 15,000 people live in safer and healthier homes.
