What is Rebuilding Day?

National Rebuilding Month is an annual month-long call to service during April culminating on the last Saturday of the month when 130 Rebuilding Together affiliates across the nation complete repairs on homes, nonprofit facilities, and community spaces.

Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley offers two Rebuilding Day home repair blitz events, pulling together hundreds of volunteers and dozens of sponsors to repair and rehabilitate nonprofit facilities and the homes of low-income homeowners. In April and October, our Rebuilding Day program provides major and minor repairs and renovations resulting in life-changing improvements for the homeowners and organizations served. Rebuilding Days are an accessible opportunity for you and your team to sponsor and volunteer on a project that revitalizes our community. As houses are transformed, neighborhoods and communities find hope and pride restored.

Our next Rebuilding Day is Saturday, October 28th, 2023!
