Donors as usual will receive free snacks and drinks for replenishment of their energy after their donations. All successful donors will receive a COVID-19 antibody test that is authorized by the FDA only for detecting the presence of antibodies but is not intended for diagnosis of COVID-19. The test results will be available approximately 7 days after donation.
Rebuilding Together Houston:
Upcoming Work Days
It again is time to pick up your paint brushes and carpenter tools to lend aid to a low income senior homeowner by helping maintain her home.
After missing both of our RTH projects last year due to COVID-19, we have been assigned a house and have begun preparations. Our schedule is to work on this house from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on April 17 and 24. Most of our work on the assigned house will include siding replacement as well as painting this one-story house. We will provide the tools and materials. It would be helpful if a few of you would bring ladders. We also will provide you with drinks and lunch.
Please let us know by e-mail to email@example.com if you can join us and work on April 17 and/or April 24. Many thanks.
