Thank you to everyone who came together to make our first annual Nobles County Rebuilding Day a huge success! Together with our volunteers and sponsors, we provided repairs and accessibility modifications for two low-income homeowners in Worthington on September 10th. We also provided additional homeowners in Southwest Minnesota with safety improvements and repairs throughout the month, including our Cottonwood County Rebuilding Day in Mountain Lake which was held on September 24th. Stay tuned next month for an update on that Rebuilding Day!
One of the homeowners we helped is Mary, a single mother of four. Volunteers spent the day landscaping to protect the basement from water damage, installing smoke and CO detectors, fixing and installing doors, cleaning gutters, and adding downspouts and leaf guards. Volunteers at the second home added grab bars and replaced kitchen flooring. We also replaced the furnace at the home, ensuring the family will be warm and safe this winter.
We would like to send a shout out to the Worthington High School Trojans football team who volunteered with us for the day!
Thanks to our amazing sponsors including: Wells Fargo, Cemstone, Tru Shine Truck Wash, Mike Woll Investment Office, Henning Construction, Inc., Hy-Vee, Bedford Industries, First State Bank Southwest, Sanford Health, Worthington Building Materials, Worthington Federal Savings Bank and Juniper.
We would also like to send a very special thank you to our Nobles County Rebuilding Day committee who raised funding for these projects, recruited volunteers, and organized the projects!
