VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: On Saturday, September 16, Rebuilding Together Arlington/Fairfax/Falls Church needs about 20 volunteers for home repairs and yard work to help two Jefferson Manor homeowners age in place. Volunteers should plan to work from about 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM. Rebuilding Together will provide the tools and materials and some skilled team leaders. Volunteers with a mix of skills are needed for the following repairs:

– Pruning trees and shrubs and yard cleanup
– Spreading topsoil to grade away from the foundation
– Building exterior steps
– Installing grab bars, stair rails and hand rails
– Sealing gaps, cracks and holes to keep out pests
– Tuning up storm porch windows
– Exterior painting
– Replacing light fixtures and installing GFCIs
– Venting a clothes dryer outside

JMCA hopes these projects will introduce our community to Rebuilding Together, engage lots of volunteers to help our neighbors, and help spread the word to other low- and moderate-income homeowners who qualify for Rebuilding Together’s free home repairs.

If you are available and interested in volunteering, please contact Natalie Arbuckle at if you are interested. Volunteers must be 14 years and older. JMCA will give community service hours to high school students who participate; just let us know that you would like to receive credit for the hours you work.
