This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Super Bowl Sanctioned event Kickoff to Rebuild hosted by Rebuilding Together, a community revitalization partner. The event provides critical home repairs to low-income homeowners and mobilizes hundreds of volunteers in the host city of the Super Bowl.
This year Rebuilding Together, Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun in Phoenix and their partners are extending their impact by working with three Phoenix neighborhoods over the next three months culminating with a rebuild project in January that will be held in conjunction with the Super Bowl.
October Project- Saturday, October 11
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Kickoff to Rebuild volunteers will provide critical repairs to the Chicanos Por La Lausa (CPLC) De Colores programs’ domestic violence shelter. CPLC De Colores is the only domestic violence shelter in the Phoenix area to exclusively offer a bilingual and bicultural environment in which women and their children can make the transition to a lifestyle free of violence. Volunteers will repair bathroom walls, paint the bedrooms and bathrooms, install new bathroom mirrors, and repair the outdoor play and seating area for the program children clients.
November Project- Date TBD
Extending the annual Paint-a-Thon hosted by Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun volunteers will work in the Hayden and McDowell neighborhoods. Volunteers will paint home exteriors, install solar motion detector lights, and build a ramp allowing the homeowner to safely access their home.
December Project- Date TBD
Stay tuned for more information!
January Projects- Thursday, January 29 – Friday, January 30
Volunteers will complete the Kickoff to Rebuild projects by installing a new Carter’s Kids playground and completing renovations on several neighborhood homes. Stay tuned for more information!
