Rebuilding Together Twin Cities recently partnered with the Mosaic Company and GLS Companies to provide critical home repairs for two North Minneapolis homeowners.
On September 23rd, volunteers from the Mosaic Company descended on the home of Harry, who has lived in his home in the Willard-Hay neighborhood of Minneapolis for nearly 20 years. Harry is a retired athletic equipment manager from the University of Minnesota, and he suffered a serious heart attack in 2009. Volunteers painted the interior and exterior of the home, repaired cracks in the foundation, replaced the front door, repaired the plumbing and made other repairs to the home. The sponsorship from the Mosaic Company will also cover the cost to replace the roof, and Standard Heating and Air Conditioning donated a new furnace.
Volunteers from GLS Companies repaired the home of Annette on September 24th. Annette has lived in her North Minneapolis home for more than 30 years, and she is partially disabled due to a back injury. Volunteers painted the interior of the home, re-graded to improve water drainage, replaced a hazardous walkway with pavers, and repaired and painted the deck.
This is the fourth year in a row that Rebuilding Together Twin Cities has partnered with the Mosaic Company and the first collaboration with GLS Companies. We thank both companies for their commitment to helping homeowners in need live independently in homes that are safe and warm!
