ReBuild MoCo Is Our First Charity of Choice

PARK & Watch EVENTS is proud to announce that Rebuilding Together Montgomery County has honored us by becoming our first charity of choice.

Rebuilding Together Montgomery County works tirelessly to match homeowners and their services needs with qualified volunteers, skilled tradesmen, and county resources to improve their client’s home and their quality of life.

Rebuilding Together started in 1973 with an act of grassroots activism and community engagement in Midland, TX. A small group of good people realized a growing need in their community. Their neighbors’ homes had fallen into disrepair and the homeowners could not afford to fix them. The founding affiliates volunteered their time and skills to rehabilitate the homes of their neighbors, the last weekend in April, and began what was known as Christmas in April. This simple act of neighbors helping neighbors inspired others to get involved and eventually spread across the country bringing together partners from all walks of life to help our neighbors year-round.

In 1988, the organization opened its national office in Washington, DC. With the growth of the organization came change, including a new name; in the mid 2000s, Christmas in April renamed itself Rebuilding Together. Today, Rebuilding Together operates nationwide with 166 affiliates within its network.

Rebuilding Together Montgomery County (RTMC), a member of the Rebuilding Together network, opened its doors in 1990 and, over the past 25+ years, has worked to provide free critical home repairs, energy efficiency upgrades, and accessibility modifications for Montgomery County’s most vulnerable residents – seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and families with children, all living in low-income households.
