We’ve been involved with RTS for years, I used to be on their board.  They bring volunteers and communities together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety, independence and dignity. On April 25th, the 25th anniversary of Rebuilding Together Seattle, they fixed up 25 houses!  We were lucky enough to work at one, owned by a 102 year old Japanese woman and her 70 year old caretaker son.  In one day, our group of 25 cleaned carpets, installed new carpet runners, rebuilt kitchen cabinets, repaired old wooden sash windows, painted window frames, mowed the lawn and trimmed up the yard.  A job well done!
