Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Clay, Marty, Ed and Katie!
What a successful Rebuilding Day we had on October 1st! We are fortunate for our mission to be featured in several different media outlets over the past several weeks.
KCTV5’s Natalie Davis aired a spectacular piece, summarized here: Volunteers come together to help those in need in Clay County
The Liberty Tribune’s Kellie Houx told our story here: Rebuilding Together Clay County Marks 15th Year
The Northland News wrote a story: Rebuilding Together Clay County Volunteers to Improve Living Conditions for Disadvantaged Homeowners
The Excelsior Springs Standard published a story, and the teaser can be found here: Rebuilding Together Offers a Hand When it’s Needed
We can’t express our gratitude enough for the volunteers that committed their time and expertise to our neighboring families in the Northland. Crew leaders worked weeks, even months in advance to recruit other volunteers, visit their project sites and prepare material lists. Groups that participated include:
Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate
Continental Disc Corporation
Crescent Lake Christian
First Federal Bank of Kansas City
Good Shepherd United Methodist Church (A Turning Point)

Our Project Managers Ed and Marty finished up a Safe at Home project this week for a sharp 100 year old woman in the Northland! A new set of low rise steps were installed that are ideal for those who use walkers, to get both your feet and walker on the step at the same time.
A low rise step was also added inside.
Ed and Marty added a grab bar above the step to help the transition between the stair lift and main floor.
Only positive words from this lively 100 year old. “Just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on my steps and the extra step on the landing to go downstairs. Really made things easier for me! That was the first thing I looked at this morning, making sure it wasn’t just a dream. You are a couple of very nice guys to be around. Enjoyed your work and you even cleaned up after you finished. Thank you so much.”
