We are thrilled to share that Rebuilding Together Howard County is participating in the year’s largest international day of giving back, Giving Tuesday! Following Thanksgiving, both Black Friday and Cyber Monday turn shoppers’ attention toward buying, but November 27 marks Giving Tuesday, which kicks off the season of charitable giving.
Rebuilding Together Howard County, Formerly known as Christmas in April, was formed in 1992 when a group of committed Howard County Residents and businesses joined together to mobilize volunteers and provide free home repairs to low-income families in Howard County. For many of these home owners, these repairs were truly a gift.
Even though our name has changed, our mission remains the same! We are still committed to improving the lives of the elderly, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and families with children; all homeowners in Howard County who have worked hard, but can no longer afford to keep up with repairs. Today, the need is even greater in the midst of the difficult economic climate.
