Rebuilding Together Day
On National Rebuilding Day, Saturday, April 24, 60 volunteers gathered at MHA's Young Adult Independent Living (YAIL) site to paint and to build a new back fence! Rebuilding Together Peninsula selected MHA to receive these services and paired MHA with FusionOne, who sponsored the project. FusionOne paid for all of the repairs, provided food for the workers, and brought many people to volunteer on National Rebuilding Day. GR8TWORK Builders, Inc., coordinated the project and brought in many skilled volunteers! All of the apartments and the garage door were painted, and there's a beautiful new fence at the back of the lot!

Many thanks to Rebuilding Together Peninsula, FusionOne, GR8TWORK Builders, and all of the volunteers who made this possible!
