Safeway Rebuilding Day is this Saturday, April 6th!

Safeway Rebuilding Day 2012
In order to raise awareness for their Disability Awareness Month (April), Safeway is partnering up with RTS to repair a group home for residents with disabilities this coming Saturday, April 6th.

Over 30 volunteers will participate in rebuilding and cleaning this home for four adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) in Shoreline. The home is owned by Parkview Services and operated by Provail. Most of the residents have lived at the home together for over 20 years and all of them, in addition to IDDs, are confined to wheelchairs.

Volunteers will be replacing the kitchen sink and refrigerator, updating the countertops, installing new light fixtures, building new shelving throughout the house, remodeling the bathroom flooring to accommodate wheelchair access, painting the interior walls, and completing much needed yard work.

Stay tuned for photos and live updates 
on Facebook and the blog this Saturday!
