Washington Multi-Family Housing Association partners with Rebuilding Together Seattle for a Volunteer Impact Day

December 9, 2016

Renton, WA – The Washington Multi-Family Housing Association (WMFHA) organized their 2nd annual Volunteer Impact Day, partnering with Rebuilding Together Seattle. Rebuilding Together Seattle brings volunteers and communities together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety and independence.

In an effort to continue to give back to local communities and provide a way for the association’s members to be a part of a charity volunteer day, WMFHA chose houses owned by an Army veteran, a WWII Air Force veteran, and a Navy veteran. “This volunteer day was extremely rewarding and heartwarming for our member participants. To be able to help these homeowners out with needed repairs was a joy for all who attended”, stated Jim Wiard, WMFHA’s Executive Director.

WMFHA’s member companies donated materials, equipment and labor to make extensive repairs and replacements in the homes. New appliances installed included a stove and a new gas furnace. Roof repairs were made in two of the homes. Carpeting was replaced in one home. A kitchen countertop, kitchen sink and a toilet were replaced in one home. Brand new roof gutters were also completely installed. Volunteers performed landscaping as well and minor repairs.

WMFHA would like to thank these members for their participation in this gratifying event: HD Supply, 1 UP Floors, Mono Rooftop Solutions, TopLine Counters, Vasquez Landscapes, American Floors & Blinds, CR Gutters, Performance Mechanical Group, ABODA, Apartment Advantage Staffing, SUHRCO, and Greystar Management.

Rebuilding Together Seattle serves low income homeowners who are elderly, living with a disability, families with children, or veterans in need.
