Rebuilding Together Twin Cities recently partnered with the Sears Heroes at Home program to make repairs and improvements to a Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) home in Minneapolis. MACV provides transitional housing and services to homeless veterans, and the home we worked on provides transitional housing for several veterans.
On September 17th, more than 20 volunteers from the Honeywell Retired Volunteers Program (HRVP) added a bedroom to the basement of the home in order to increase the number of veterans who can live there. HRVP volunteers added an egress window, constructed a wall and ceiling, installed a new refrigerator and backsplash in the kitchen, and installed a new shower kit and trim around the shower in the bathroom on the main floor of the home.
Sears generously provided the funding for this project, and Heroes at Home projects were completed in more than 60 cities across the country. We thank Sears and HRVP for partnering with us to help more veterans in our community!
