21st Annual Rebuilding Together “Kickoff To Rebuild”
In conjunction with Super Bowl 50, Rebuilding Together – a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing – and its local affiliate Rebuilding Together San Francisco, joined together on Friday for its 21st annual Kickoff to Rebuild project, presented by Lowe’s, in the Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. This year’s event was the culmination of a series of projects across the Bay Area by five Rebuilding Together affiliates. This effort is made possible through the generous support of the event’s national and local partners, including lead partner Lowe’s, as well as CBRE, Bose, Bridgestone and Swinerton Builders.
For 21 years, Rebuilding Together has partnered with the NFL in Super Bowl cities across the country, rebuilding houses and bringing together neighborhoods. Together, they have repaired 112 homes and engaged more than 3,700 volunteers. This year, with more than a hundred volunteers from corporate and community partners, it will provide six low-income families with home repairs, restore a community shelter and revitalize the Bay Area community.
Rebuilding Together’s work in the Bay Area goes beyond making homes safe and healthy. As one of the most expensive housing markets in the country, affordable housing options are disappearing rapidly. Rebuilding Together’s efforts both through its Bay Area affiliates and Kickoff to Rebuild helps revitalize communities and keeps people in their homes, helping to preserve intergenerational wealth and ensuring families, neighbors and communities remain together.
