COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY PROJECT

Community Service Day

13th Annual Community Service Day Project

Monday, January 31, 2022

Each year the International Roofing Expo partners with Rebuilding Together to make critical home repairs for those in need. Help us revitalize New Orleans and give back to the local community by participating in the 13th Annual Community Service Day Project. This year you can participate by volunteering in New Orleans, donating, and sharing the project with others. In addition to your hard work and donations, the International Roofing Expo will be donating $10,000 to the project to help rebuild New Orleans.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Rebuilding Together New Orleans continues to respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida. Unfortunately, months later, we know that many neighbors lack the resources needed to rebuild. To kick off a year of recovery efforts, RTNO and the IRE will host the 13th Annual Community Service Day Project on January 31, 2022. 

Over 50 volunteers from across the country will assist homeowners with critical repairs before attending the world’s largest roofing convention. These home repairs help ensure the safety and health of New Orleanians in need, including families with young children, seniors, and people with disabilities.

In addition to volunteering, the IRE is accepting donations with a goal to raise $10,000 to help the city of New Orleans.

VOLUNTEER DAY PROJECT DETAILS

Ronald Magee, a lifelong resident of New Orleans. He loves his corner of St. Roch and is an active member of his church. Unfortunately, his retirement income is not enough to cover major repairs, let alone the damages caused by Hurricane Ida. “I’m so grateful for Rebuilding Together,” said Mr. Magee. “The thought of trying to fix my house on my own keeps me up at night!” In order to help Mr. Magee feel better about living in his home, repairs will be made to his porch and stairs, weatherproofing his windows and giving his home a fresh coat of paint.

Barbara Green lives in the heart of a neighborhood that has changed immensely in her 75 years of life. She has lived through its many changes and been a part of its community for her entire life. "I've lived in this neighborhood forever, really," said Ms. Green. To helo restore Mrs. Green's home, RTNO will carefully treat termite damage, remove and replace damaged wood around the exterior, repaint the home's exterior, and replace broken vents, window sills and trim where necessary. When repairs are completed, Mrs. Green is most looking forward to planting a new garden in the front of the home with her son.
