MUSCATINE, Iowa —What does it take to rebuild a county? For starters, how about a hammer, a shovel and a willingness to work?
If you have one or all of those, organizers at Rebuilding Together Muscatine County have a spot for you on Saturday, April 28.
That’s the day the local chapter of the National Rebuilding Together organization plans to complete projects at four area houses and two non-profit centers.
Since its founding in 2007, by executive director Frank Iliff, the non-profit Rebuilding Muscatine County has helped more than 30 low-income homeowners who needed repairs.
Rebuilding’s recipients include the disabled and elderly, at-risk families with children, veterans and active military members.
To make the best use of time and resources, volunteers with all types of talents and ideas are needed, said Deb Iliff, Frank’s wife, and volunteer coordinator for the organization.
“Even if you can’t do electrical work, you can pick up a rake,” said Deb Iliff. “And if you’re too young to use power tools, you can pick up trash.”
She added there is also a need for ambassadors. These are people who sit and talk with the homeowners while the work is being done.
“One couple we worked with had lived in their home for 50 years and had spent a lot of time alone,” said Deb Iliff. “Then they had all these people at their house, and it was a big change. One of our volunteers spent the day with that couple and kept them company.”
Volunteers will receive lunch and a T-shirt, and may even learn some new skills.
Some people put together a group from their workplace, said Iliff, or families form teams, as do groups and organizations. Walk-in volunteers are welcome the day of the event, but teams have a better chance of working together at the same site when they sign up by Saturday, April 21, said Deb Iliff.
Applications are available at:
– Calvary Church, 501 W. Bypass Iowa Highway 61
– Muscatine County Extension Office, 1514 Isett Ave.
– The Muscatine Journal, 301 E. Third St.
– Rebuilding Together Muscatine County, 205 Cedar St.
– Shear Success, 109 Lake Park Blvd.
Volunteers will meet at 7:15 a.m. on National Rebuilding Day at the Rebuilding Together Muscatine County headquarters, 205 Cedar St.
Donations can also be mailed to the Rebuilding Together Muscatine County headquarters.
It’s finally here!
