  • This location is shown only to members

With the success of Rebuild Day 2013, Rebuilding Together Tampa is hard at work getting ready for our next volunteer day. On June 22, RTTB will be in the neighborhood of Tampa Heights in Tampa helping five homeowners. With funds made possible by Wells Fargo, RTTB has been able to provide much needed repairs to the homes of 12 families so far, with many more well on the way.

It will be a busy day! 200 volunteers will come out and do exterior painting and landscaping for five homes. All work being done for these homeowners is provided free of charge.

How we will LEND A HAND

We will pitch in and help with landscaping, painting, street clean up, or anywhere else we're needed. Breakfast will be provided but please pack a lunch. Every member of the team will receive a t-shirt to wear for volunteering!

The meeting point is at the park where assignments will be given.

Schedule:

8am - 1pm - Meet at the volunteer check-in at 8am to meet each other and sign in with the event host.

What to bring:

  1. Please wear casual, comfortable, weather-appropriate clothes and closed-toed shoes
  2. Sunscreen and/or a hat
  3. Your lunch
  4. A bottle of water for yourself
  5. A warm smile!

Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization. Last-minute drop-outs are difficult to replace and reflect badly on our organization.

    It was eventful for me. I learned how to deal with my abossive compulsive behavior for everything, at least most things, must be organized. I gave the event a three stars because I felt that I could of been a little more welcoming and tookore pictures. There were a lot of different groups of volunteers there, so much. But we did get some volunteering done. I am proud of our group. Our group put the pick up trash bags in the trash bag area, instead of putting them on the streets. Very good work all.

      Hello to all who will and might be attending today. To answer Brandon's question about volunteering is going on today due to possible rain. Yes, Brandon is correct about painting in the rain, that would be hard. From the "little" descriptions about this event, there are also cleaning up, trash pick up, and other things mentioned. That is my sarcasm there - little. To an eventful day.
