If you or someone you know within the Duneland community has been struggling financially and is in need of home repair, get in contact with Rebuilding Together Duneland (RTD) to see if RTD can provide free assistance.

Itís not always easy to ask for help, and often the people who need assistance most are the least willing to seek it. RTDís mission is to ďImprove the homes and lives of financially-burdened homeowners in the Duneland Community,Ē and that could be anyone who has fallen on hard times and needs a hand. Thatís what neighbors are for--thatís what RTD is for.

Since 1997, RTD has brought together thousands of volunteers and skilled contractors interested in helping their neighbors and improving their neighborhoods. RTD has reinvested donations totaling over $1.2 million dollars into 212 home and community projects across the Duneland area. All of that effort culminates on National Rebuilding Day, when all the projects planned—everything from yard work to total roof replacement—are carried out at once.

This year, National Rebuilding Day is on April 24, 2021. While that date may seem far away, thereís a lot that has to happen behind the scenes before that day. Thatís why RTD must start planning as soon as possible in order for volunteers and skilled workers to do the most good.
