Rebuilding Day 2017 To Provide Seven Home Makeovers

By- Susan A. Neufeld

Mountain Communities- On Saturday, April 29 – Rebuilding Day – seven homes will get makeovers! Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities selected the seven homes and trade and non-trade volunteers will converge on the homes bright and early Saturday to make the necessary repairs and improvements.

Everyone gathers at the Mountain Communities Senior/Community Center at 67 Grandview Road in  Twin Peaks for a continental breakfast before heading out to help their neighbors!


House sponsors this year are San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, Bill and Diane Ruch Foundation, St. Richards Episcopal and Lake Arrowhead Communities Presbyterian Churches and Lake Arrowhead Sunrise Rotary.

Their $1,500 sponsorships allows hundreds of volunteers to apply paint, make roof repairs, clean yards, build rails and decks and completer other repairs requested by the homeowners.

House Sponsors, volunteer coordinators, house captains, and non-trade volunteers are still needed. A volunteer form is available on line at


After Rebuilding Day is over, Mountain Sunrise Rotary will host a free spaghetti dinner for volunteers and homeowners at the Mountain Communities Senior Center in Twin Peaks.

Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities also gladly accepts cash donations either by mail or through PayPal on its website.
