We receive the support of many volunteers from the El Paso community. Most of the volunteers represent an organization, returning on our Event Day for many years. Let’s honor these volunteer teams :
The returning teams come from the following organizations :
Home Depot – Financial support – Skilled Volunteers, Project Planning and execution
Team Depot is one of our great partners. When they get involved homes are mostly completely renovated, with materials and appliances from the Home Depot Store. Team Depot embraces the homeowner and takes full control of the project. Working with other organizations they arrange for donations, like windows, carpets etc.
On the Home Deport Event Day they show their team spirit, starting the day with a yell. They BBQ for lunch and don’t leave before the project is finished.
Lowe’s – Financial Support – Skilled volunteers
The skilled volunteers from Lowe’s have been transforming homes. Where other volunteer teams paint and clean up yards, they hang doors, install faucets and toilets and appliances.
Wells Fargo – Financial Support – Volunteers
Bank of America – Financial support – Volunteers
El Paso Electric – Financial Support – Volunteers
This local El Paso organization is a long time supporter of our non-profit. They like to provide financial support to a non-profit which can extend the company mission to the involvement of their employees. The volunteers show up in big numbers and paint the home of one of the Rebuilding Together clients.
EPE is also using their participation to develop leadership by assigning every year a new Team Leader who coordinates the project for Event Day.
At this moment Rebuilding Together is supported by one of their employees in the Home Review activity. She gets paid leave for the time needed to review the repair requirements of an applying homeowner.
Other volunteering organizations :
ADP employees are here representing Sears at the home of a veterans, celebrating the Heroes at Home initiative of the Sears company.
Beth El Bible Church
The volunteers of this church group likes to practice what is preached.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
Unfortunately this company is relocated and will not have employees in El Paso any more. For many years the employees of this great company took the initiative to adopt a complete home. With their skills they came a long way to take care of the repairs needed at the home of one of the clients of Rebuilding Together. They spent their free time over one or two weeks to repair floors, walls, doors, etc. They arranged themselves befriended professional roofers when complete professionalism was required.
EP Mortgage Bankers
German Military : “Aid for the Needy”
Raytheon‘s slogan is “Making The World A Safer Place”
What their employees certainly also do is making local homeowners happy by painting their homes. This is a pure employee initiative under the long time leadership of Elna Diaz. Their professionalism and care are outstanding and we love to see them back every year.
Riverside High School
The students of Riverside High Schools always show up in great numbers. Some years they even paint up to three homes. The National Honor Society students are featured in the Happy video at the top of this page.
Project Move is an initiative of UTEP and over 200 students volunteer every year for Rebuilding Together. Ten homes are prepared for their painting skills, while they also clean up yards. Project Move starts very year with a rally at the UTEP and the between 1000 and 2000 student spread out over El Paso to help non-profits. “Our” student are assigned to the homes when they arrive at the rally and after enjoying a breakfast they got out to the homes. To the surprise of many the job appears not to be a burden, but a fun event with a lot of friendship and bonding.
