12th Annual Community Service Day

Community Service Day

Giving back locally to help rebuild the community.

Each year we partner with the local chapter of Rebuilding Together to help make critical home repairs for those in need, including low-income seniors, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. Volunteers arrive at the IRE early and pitch in to help make the repairs and improvements.

This year our Community Service Day Project has gone digital! We can’t physically work on the project the year, but we can still make a major impact. You can participate in our 12th Annual Community Service Day Project by donating to help us reach our goal of $10,000.

In addition to your donations, the IRE will donate a portion of all paid registration fees to our project.

About the Project

Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada (RTSNV) constantly has projects in the works, and we want to help make a bigger impact. Each project can require unique materials, but many projects need basic materials.  Our goal is to help raise $10,000 to help them tackle multiple projects, both small and large. 

Your donations will go towards helping a Las Vegas resident that is in desperate need of a new HVAC system. With summer creeping upon us, we want to help them stay comfortable in their own home. The funds will also help RTSNV purchase materials needed for smaller projects. Materials include smoke detectors, CO detectors, grab bars, fire extinguishers, ADA toilets, water heaters, security lights, and more.

ROOFING PROJECT

In addition to the HVAC system and general materials, each year we adopt a roofing project.

Ms. Lee Ann Luttrell, age 73, was born in Roselle, IL, and has been a Las Vegas resident for 35 years. She has multiple disabilities that make it difficult for her to get around independently and require her to use a walker.  She has one daughter that lives in Florida with her grandson that is a leukemia survivor.

Ms. Luttrell is in dire need of a new roof for her home. It's a shingle roof with 2,700 sq. ft. of pitch roof and 480 sq. ft. of flat roof. In addition, the swamp cooler on the roof needs to be removed, and 18 LF. of fascia on the gable side of the home needs replacing.  We are looking for a company that can help us with our roofing project.
