The Seattle Chapter of NWIR will be partnering with Rebuilding Together South Sound for their annual Rebuilding Day and heading up their SheBuilds Project. This will be held on Saturday, April 25th, 2020.
Our chapter will be helping Mittie, who is an 85 year old disabled women who has been a pillar in the community for decades. She was an active part of her neighborhood council group and worked as a nurse in Tacoma for many years.
We plan on helping her with the following items:

  • Roof related scope – replace roof (2 layers, visual evidence of rotten sheathing), replace water damaged eaves around house.
  • Other exterior scope of work – rework handrail to front door, replace garage car door, yard work/debris removal, repair dining room window
  • Other interior scope of work – install grab bars in bathroom, repair kitchen ceiling where roof leak caused cracking, installing smoke and CO detectors, providing fire extinguisher.
  • We’re so excited that GAF has graciously donated all the shingles and has even offered their new Roofing Academy space in Lakewood, WA for us to practice on mock-ups for those of us who are interested in being more hands-on this year.

Thank you to those who volunteered and sponsored last year. We look forward to making this year even better and helping a woman in need!
