1. Why did you choose to get involved with RTS? How long have you been volunteering with RTS?
I started volunteering with Rebuilding Together through my college and loved it! I go to Gonzaga University and a friend of mine and I helped to rehabilitate a youth center in the Hillyard neighborhood of Spokane. I am from Western Washington and as Miss Seattle I want to bring more attention to this great organization. I hope that by hosting a Miss Seattle Rebuilding Day, more people will get involved with RTS's message and take a day of their time to either volunteer or fundraise with this organization.
2. What do you enjoy the most about working with our organization?
I enjoy seeing my efforts produce a measurable outcome. It is great to see a group of people come together in one day to make a difference in the life of someone who needs it. Home repairs can be expensive and to take that burden away from someone feels amazing.
3. What do your colleagues or other volunteers say about RTS? Why do they want to volunteer their time?
RTS has a great reputation in the Seattle area. People are constantly amazed at how helping someone repair their home can make such a big difference.
4. What about RTS’ mission are you most drawn to?
I'm drawn to the idea that many people need help in this tough economy. Not everyone needs a brand-new home and not everyone has the money to make repairs--Rebuilding Together Seattle helps the people that fall in the middle.
5. Do you have any other comments you’d like to share at this time?
I am excited to work with Rebuilding Together Seattle this year as Miss Seattle 2011. This organization is helping the lives of homeowners that otherwise wouldn't be able to have a safe and/or functional home. The hope that RTS gives to the community is amazing!
Thank you for choosing RTS, Lauren!
