Dear Friends of Rebuilding Together,
As many of you know, we recently celebrated an incredible milestone for this organization: we completed "Rebuild 1000", a pledge to rebuild 1,000 Gulf Coast homes after the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in September 2005.
Over the last six years, volunteers, sponsors, affiliates and leaders joined together, and traveled to neighborhoods across the Gulf Coast, in order to rebuild. Yet, we realized, we weren't simply rebuilding a home. We were rebuilding hope for those who thought they had lost it all.
As an organization, we pride ourselves on delivering sustainable and healthy homes for those in-need. Rebuild 1000 was a way for us to show our commitment to these ideals, and begin to restore hope for families in their darkest hour.
I hope you take a moment to watch our video below, which chronicles our journey throughout Rebuild 1000.
