Greenpoint Technologies to Rebuild Home of Hurricane Katrina Evacuee, Suzette!

RTS is looking forward to another successful Spring Rebuilding Day with our top sponsor group from the last 4 years, Greenpoint Technologies!

On April 27th, Greenpoint volunteers will be restoring the home of Suzette, who lives with her 11 year old son in the Highland Park neighborhood of West Seattle. Suzette and her son were displaced from their home in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and moved to Seattle soon after. When Suzette received the news that she would be receiving help from Greenpoint    volunteers on Spring Rebuilding Day, she said "I felt like a ton of bricks were lifted off my shoulders and I am so elated that we will be getting much-needed housing repairs so we can have a happy, safe and warm home to live in for many years to come.

Volunteers will be replacing Suzette's oven and refrigerator, repairing and replacing doors throughout the home, installing new installation, painting throughout the home, replacing bathroom tile, sort and donating items from the garage, and installing flashing smoke alarms and doorbell to help Suzette, who has been deaf since birth.
Thank you, Greenpoint Technologies, for all you do for Rebuilding Together Seattle and for the impact you will have on Suzette's life. We will be posting pictures of Greenpoint volunteers' work restoring Suzette's home after April 27th. Be sure to check back to the blog and our Facebook page for my details and photos!
