MidCountry Bank Helps Eva

On May 22nd, more than 20 volunteers from MidCountry Bank partnered with us to help Eva in St. Paul.  Kyle Swatfager, the AmeriCorps member who worked with the volunteer team that day, said “The MidCountry Bank volunteers successfully installed seven windows, installed new flooring in Eva’s kitchen, drylocked her basement to prevent future erosion and mold growth, and completely changed the visual appearance of the home by replanting and mulching multiple garden beds. I enjoyed the group’s willingness to assist one another and Rebuilding Together staff to ensure maximum productivity for Eva. We can’t wait to partner with MidCountry Bank again!”

This is the ninth consecutive year that we’ve partnered with MidCountry Bank to help families in need in the Twin Cities.  Thank you to MidCountry for their support and thanks to the volunteers who came out to help Eva!

Wells Fargo Rebuilds Three Homes

More than 70 volunteers from Wells Fargo joined us for five days of hard work and fun earlier this month as we made repairs for three homeowners in need in St. Paul.  Volunteers did everything from rebuilding stairs to landscaping, and their hard work will have a lasting positive impact for these homeowners!

Thank you to the incredible volunteers from Wells Fargo for your hard work and thanks to Wells Fargo for your continued partnership with us to help homeowners in need live in safe and healthy homes!

Boston Scientific Makes Zack’s House a Home

We were thrilled to partner with 30 Boston Scientific volunteers on June 13th to landscape at Zack Mohs’ house in South St. Paul.

Zack grew up in South St. Paul and was nearly killed after being run over and dragged by a hit-and-run driver while trying to cross an intersection in Anchorage, Alaska in 2012. He was in a coma for a month and suffered a traumatic brain injury, fractured vertebrae, an amputated leg and broken bones.  Zack is in a wheelchair and is still undergoing outpatient physical and occupational therapy at the Courage Center.

The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) Foundation has been working with Zack and his mother, Cheryl, to help build an accessible home for Zack on land Cheryl purchased in South St. Paul.  Through generous contributions from BATC’s members and funds raised through Barnraisings, Zack’s home has become a reality.

With the support and hard work of Boston Scientific volunteers, we were able to help make Zack’s house more of a home this month.  Volunteers landscaped the yard and exterior of the home, including laying sod and planting flowers and bushes.

Thank you to everyone who has come together to bring Zack home!
