Annual Dinner – Thursday, October 6
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Long before the phrase “Building Back Better” became fashionable (in some circles,) this mostly volunteer Not-For-Profit local organization suspended the debate, went to work, and did it large.
How large? according to the Rebuilding Together Saratoga County WEBSITE:
“In the 19 years since its founding, Rebuilding Together Saratoga County has repaired 1,506 homes, improved 109 nonprofit centers and community spaces, and replaced 30 substandard manufactured homes with the help of more than 10,929 volunteers who have dedicated over 85,590 hours of their time, bringing hope and renewed pride to homeowners in need throughout Saratoga County”.
It was these achievements, accumulated one home at a time, that brought together a full house to The Hall of Springs on Thursday, October 6, for their annual dinner. This gathering serves not only to celebrate the scope of Rebuilding Together Saratoga County’s achievements, but also as a rededication to their collective purpose – for there is much work still to be done.
“When qualified homeowners are not capable of making needed repairs, Rebuilding Together Saratoga County will coordinate the volunteers, contractors, tools and supplies necessary to fix the homes. These services are provided at no cost to the homeowner. Rebuilding Together Saratoga County also works to rehabilitate community spaces and properties that house qualifying nonprofit organizations serving our community. Services are focused on older adults, individuals living with disabilities, active and retired members of the armed services, and families with children and services are tailored to meet the needs of each individual homeowner.”
Executive Director Michelle Larkin said afterward: “We are always humbled by the generosity of those who attend our event!”
