Last year, Rebuilding Together Seattle started an inaugural Valentine's Day campaign called Hearts Rebuilding Homes. From February 1st through February 14th, we asked our supporters to make a difference in the lives of homeowners in need by making a donation to our organization, in honor of their loved ones.
Our first Hearts Rebuilding Homes campaign was a big success last year. Over 42 donors contributed over $2,400 in just 14 days! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to help four homeowners in need.
This year, Rebuilding Together Seattle is excited to celebrate the second year of Hearts Rebuilding Homes, starting on Wednesday, February 1st. Our supporters will have fourteen days to make a donation online (or by mail) to Rebuilding Together Seattle in honor of their loved ones.
After receiving confirmation of your donation, Rebuilding Together Seattle will mail a special card to your Valentine, notifying him/her of your donation. Later in the year, we'll send an email greeting to all donors and card recipients to let them know about the families we were able to help with your support.
Elleree is an elderly homeowner who lives with her daughter and two grandchildren in South Seattle. She is a widow of a veteran. She needs new flooring, security improvements, bathroom updates including grab bars, new appliances and yard work.
