It’s a Great Time to Get Involved
By Executive Director Deanne Everton
Last year was an incredible year for RTSV. RTSV celebrated 30 years of service, a milestone we achieved with community support from our partners and volunteers, allowing us to continue our life-changing work since our establishment in 1991. With such a landmark achievement, we decided to celebrate all year long by kicking off programs and events such as the RTSV Store, Paint The Town Green, and our Staff Give Back Day in December. Thanks to your support, there are more ways to get involved with RTSV!
Want to get more involved this year? The Change Order is a group of RTSV’s dedicated supporters who make a monthly contribution of any size, dedicated to helping our most vulnerable neighbors in need. Members can take pride in knowing that they are actively addressing the housing crisis, while enjoying member-only perks like 2 free tickets to our annual fundraiser, early access to National Rebuilding Day swag, and recognition on our Change Order web page. Joining the Change Order empowers RTSV to plan ahead, but is also just one of the ways to get involved with RTSV
Another part of our year-long 30th anniversary celebration was the return of Safe at Home! Safe at Home is a fantastic way to get involved for people who want to volunteer and give back more than just twice a year at our Rebuilding Days. Each month, our Safe at Home volunteers work on a project alongside trained RTSV staff to complete safety repairs for a neighbor in need. Just like Rebuilding Day, we welcome volunteers of all skill levels at Safe at Home which makes it an easy and immersive way to get involved with RTSV.
As always, at the end of April we will welcome volunteers back for National Rebuilding Day, our largest volunteer experience of the year. We’d love to see you out there on April 30th!
If you can’t join us then, perhaps you can join us for our first ever RTSV Presents: The Home Team event. This will be the perfect chance to have fun together at a San Jose Giants game on June 2nd, while supporting RTSV and the life-changing work we complete. All are invited.
We’ve also got some innovative new programs on the horizon so look for more details soon. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like more information or find out more at www.rtsv.org. Thank you for your continued support.
At Rebuilding Together – Silicon Valley, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home, so we help provide critical home repairs to over 600 clients per year, including those who are aging in place. We rely on generous donations—like those on Giving Tuesday—to continue our essential work and the positive impact we have in these communities.
Our Work Takes Grit!
and create change firsthand!
