This month, instead of choosing one outstanding volunteer, we would like to acknowledge two members of our Board of Directors, Kristen Cramer and Val Gorder, for their dedication and contributions to Rebuilding Together Seattle over the past six years. What an incredible commitment! We are sad to say goodbye to them in their roles as Board Members as their 6 year term ends but we are happy to know they both will stay involved with RTS.
“Kristen has been an asset to our organization for many years. In addition to sharing her professional knowledge about home maintenance and repairs, Kristen has been an asset to our programs through her involvement with the Site Preview Team and managing rebuilding day projects. We can always count on Kristen to visit our project sites and give great updates on the work of our organization. Kristen has contributed greatly to the growth of Rebuilding Together Seattle in recent years, and has made an excellent commitment to her role as a Board member.” (written by Margie Thirlby, RTS Executive Director)

“Words cannot describe how instrumental of a leader Val has been at Rebuilding Together Seattle in recent years. Val served as our Board President for two years and was an incredible leader for our Board and entire organization. Val has played a large role in the growth of our programs, in addition to facilitating our annual fundraising plan. Val is a committed member of the Site Preview Team and has an evident passion for working with our clients to ensure that they live in warm and safe living environment. Val always keeps our team grounded by reminding us often of our mission and who we are serving. We are so lucky to have Val on our Board and are thankful for her countless contributions.” (written by Margie Thirlby, RTS Executive Director)
