200 Volunteers from Comcast Join Us for Day of Service for Comcast Cares Day

On April 27th, 200 volunteers from Comcast worked with us as part of their annual Comcast Cares Day.  After a morning kick-off rally, volunteers headed out to two sites.  One group headed to the Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life to landscape and garden, build a picket fence, complete general repairs on a wood shed and barn, and raise a tipi.  The other group of volunteers spent the day at the Chelsea Heights Elementary School, helping to deconstruct the playground equipment and rip out the existing rubberized base.

Thank you to Comcast for partnering with us on these projects!

Check out our time-lapse video of the work volunteers completed at the Chelsea Heights Elementary School here.

Minnesota Timberwolves and Linx Work at Gibbs Museum

On August 17th, more than 100 volunteers from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Linx joined forces with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities to make repairs at the Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life in St. Paul.  Volunteers installed new fencing, repaired existing fencing and worked in the gardens.  This is the fourth year in a row that Rebuilding Together Twin Cities has partnered with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the FastBreak Foundation to improve community spaces in the Twin Cities.

The Gibbs Museum is an important community resource that provides subsidized tours for schools serving lower-income areas, performs outreach programs in local schools, hosts programs for home-schooled children, and provides information about pioneer and Dakotah life to teachers in the nine-county region.

Thanks again to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Linx staff who came out to volunteer at the Gibbs Museum and thank you to the FastBreak Foundation for providing the resources to make these improvements!

Honeywell Family Day Spent Volunteering at Gibbs Museum

Volunteers of all ages joined Rebuilding Together Twin Cities at the Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life for the Honeywell Family Day on Saturday, July 30th.  More than 80 volunteers came out for this annual event to spend the day working, having fun and enjoying a picnic lunch.

Volunteers started digging and installing posts for a new fence on the North side of the property. Volunteers also worked in the Gibbs Museum garden, weeding and landscaping.

Thanks again to everyone who came out for the Honeywell Family Day!  We look forward to working side-by-side with you again next year!
