Rebuilding Together has declared the last Saturday in April as National Rebuilding Day. On this day and over the weekend, thousands of volunteers throughout the country join together to provide critical and life-saving repairs for vulnerable families in our communities.
Rebuilding Together Austin has been working with Ms. Ockletree and her home will be the featured project for National Rebuilding Day. April 28th is also Ms. Ockletree’s birthday! Austin 1st Platoon and Rebuilding Together Austin will join forces to make her birthday one to be remembered.
Ms. Ockletree is 83, taking care of three young teens, and her spirit is contagious. Her home is in need of the repairs that RTA specializes in. Already, contractors have been completing additional projects in her home including: a new roof, installing an HVAC system and making her bathroom more safe and easily accessible.

Y'all, we had a fantastic time on demo day. We got straight to it, overcame the inevitable obstacles, and accomplished more than we set out to do. Now it's time to finish the job!

Y'all, this is the main event! Come on out and join us in service to Ms. Ockletree!
