Spring has officially arrived! That means our staff and volunteers are busy planning for our signature event of the year, National Rebuilding Day (NRD), which will be held on April 30, 2022. We've introduced our house captains to the homeowners they'll be helping and we're setting them up with all the planning tools they need to ensure they have a fun, rewarding and successful day helping homeowners in need.
Our RT Express volunteers continue to amaze me with their year-round commitment to serving homeowners in need. They helped 14 homeowners in March alone. The teams have been installing grab bars, comfort height toilets, railings and new lighting, and taking care of deferred maintenance and making other safety repairs. If you'd like to join our RT Express program as a volunteer please complete a Volunteer Information Form and we'll be in contact with you.
I'm proud to announce that longtime RT-AFF volunteer Bob Austin received the 2022 Privilege Award for service to the Fairfax community from the Bernie L. Bates Foundation.
We're very pleased to welcome Arlington Community Federal Credit Union (ACFCU) as a new partner in our mission. ACFCU awarded RT-AFF a grant of $10,000. Please read on to learn more about their support of RT-AFF and our community.
Thank you for your support of safe and healthy homes in our community.
