REMODELERS COUNCIL: COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Remodelers Council and VBRA members believe strongly in giving back to their communities. Below please find a list of organizations the Remodelers Council sponsors and supports.
Rebuilding Together Greater Burlington, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Vermonters by making free critical repairs to their homes. Since 1996, the mission has been to work in partnership with the community to rehabilitate the homes of Vermonters of limited means so they can live in warmth, safety and independence.
Remodelers Council members not only donate funds to this organization, but they volunteer a day's labor twice a year to help their neighbors maintain their homes.
Each December, Remodelers Council members choose a family that could use some help for the holidays due to illness, injury, or job loss. RC members purchase gifts, food, event tickets etc. and present them to the family. For RC members, this is the true meaning of the holiday!
In 2015, the Remodelers Council began an annual tradition of holding a BBQ for its members and their families as a way to come together outside of the typical monthly meetings. In 2016, the Council partnered with Rebuilding Together* Greater Burlington as a way to broaden their outreach with another local community based group. Both organizations bring another level of professionalism to the industry and area, while giving back to the community. The BBQ offers both groups the opportunity to further a bond between those in the trades and those that could benefit from their expertise and help. More than anything, it is an opportunity to connect, relax, and celebrate the work and time each side puts in each year.
