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.

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

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.”

SEARS AND REBUILDING TOGETHER PARTNER TOGETHER TO HELP A LOCAL VETERAN

Thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Sears – Heroes at Home program plus volunteer help from the Kearney United Methodist Church and our Safe at Home Volunteers, a veteran’s family now has a much better home in which to live!  The veteran’s wife suffers from a severe disabling condition, and it had been months since she had taken a shower.  Their plumbing problems were so bad that their toilet, tub, sinks, and washer were all just dumping waste into the crawl space.  Further, a large tree was rubbing their roof, gutters were falling off the fascia, and the front porch was deteriorating and sagging.
This partnership between Sears and RTCC has successfully resolved every one of those problem areas and more.  The family now has a brand new accessible bathroom and shower, and all of the plumbing needs are fixed.  Here is what the family said in response:
“Dear Sears and the Heroes at Home Program,
We will be eternally grateful that you so graciously approved us for assistance.  Rebuilding Together Clay County and all of the volunteers involved did a wondrous job of creating a beautiful, handicap accessible bathroom. The attention to detail was amazing! The generosity of Sears was overwhelming, and we thank you so much. Your caring and involvement in the lives of our returned service personnel goes far beyond being merely patriotic. Sears is the epitome of a community-minded organization who is truly “paying it forward.”
