Order Your Planter Today!

We are thrilled to share a very special opportunity to get a unique gift while supporting Rebuilding Together Twin Cities!

We are constructing handmade wooden flower planters that can be purchased and delivered.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will support our efforts to help our neighbors in need have a safe and healthy place to call home.

The cedar planters are 2 feet by 4 feet and can be purchased for $400 on a first-come, first-served basis. For $500, we will fill the planter with soil and deliver the planter.

You can purchase this special gift by contacting Silva at s.helmer@rebuildingtogether-twincities.org or Annette at a.rodriguez@rebuildingtogether-twincities.org.

COVID-19 Update

Although we have temporarily suspended projects and postponed volunteer groups who help us complete repairs, we are still accepting applications for Safe at Home and Home Repair projects. Please click on the Apply For Help section of the website for more information.

We have also rescheduled our Neighbor Helping Neighbor Breakfast fundraiser to later this year. Once these unprecedented challenges are behind us, the need for Rebuilding Together’s critical home repair services will be more important than ever.

During times like these, our work of providing critical home repairs to ensure the safety and health of our low-income neighbors including families with young children, seniors, people with disabilities, and other at-risk populations will demand new ways of delivering our services. This is why we are asking for your help. The spread of COVID-19 has made our work more challenging, but we will persevere. Please consider a donation today to support our mission and keep our community safe.

The Rebuilding Together staff is currently working from home. We will keep you updated as this situation develops. If you have questions, please email info@rebuildingtogether-twincities.org or leave a message at (651) 776-4273.

Be safe and be well.

Thanks to the Opus Ramp Team!

Last fall, we partnered with Opus to launch a second Ramp Team! This Team built their first ramp on October 24th and 25th for a woman in Richfield who recently suffered a stroke. The Opus Ramp Team is currently composed of nine retired Opus corporation employees, who served in a variety of positions, including superintendents, field staff, architects and sales and administrative supervisors. Together, this Team has over 250 years of construction-related experience!  

Craig Larson, the Opus Ramp Team Lead, is very excited about getting the Opus Team up and running. He looks forward to having even more Opus retirees join the Team and some good-natured competition between the new Opus Ramp Team and our Honeywell Ramp Team in the coming years.

University of Minnesota Law School Volunteers Give Back

We would like to send a special shout out to the faculty and students from the University of Minnesota Law School who dedicated part of their busy Saturday to help us in our warehouse. They spent the morning building storage systems and sorting and cleaning. They volunteered as part of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service event, and we are very grateful for their hard work!
