Back to Front Page




Rebuilding Together Duneland (RTD) Board of Directors welcome new board and committee members. Brian Erxleben is the new Secretary and Sam Allie of Above Board Construction is the Logistics Coordinator. Jeanne Hayes and Tom Lee worked with Brian on the House Selection Committee. Trent Albert of Albert Photographic is the new Marketing Chairperson. RTD needs volunteers to help out on Saturday, April 27 for National Rebuilding Day. In order for RTD to properly plan for the rehabilitation of 13 homes and two community projects by providing lunch and a t-shirt for each volunteer, the deadline to submit all applications is April 1.

This is a great opportunity to help make a difference in the Duneland Community. Skilled or unskilled, all are welcome over the age of 14. Local companies can bring employees together for a volunteer team building opportunity. These volunteers, with the help of local sponsors and product and material donors, work to ensure that financially struggling homeowners, particularly the elderly or disabled, as well as families with children, live independently in a warm and safe home.

RTD strongly encourages volunteers to submit their applications through the volunteer tab on their website

 It is also possible to download an application from the website, complete and mail it to P.O. Box 644, Chesterton, IN 46304. Alternatively, applications are available for pick up at Hopkins Ace Hardware, the Westchester Public Library Reference Desk and the Duneland Chamber of Commerce. There is no same day registration.

Anyone unable to volunteer, but interested in supporting Rebuilding Together Duneland financially may donate online at

through PayPal, under the donations tab or through the mail at P.O. Box 644, Chesterton, IN 46304. For more information, please call 219-926-3233.
