Our Veterans Build event kicks off next Tuesday, November 2 in support of our affordable homebuilding programs and VetRepair program, which repairs homes owned by veterans — veterans like Sylvester and DeBorah.

Veterans of the United States Navy, Sylvester and DeBorah have lived in their home in Valencia Park for over 30 years. DeBorah says the neighborhood’s best quality is its diversity, both culturally and geographically. Their home is in dire need of repair, including a new roof, window replacements, exterior painting, shed repairs, and installation of manageable landscaping. The cost of these projects is beyond what they can afford, but our VetRepair program and the volunteers of Veterans Build are lending a hand.

Registration for Veterans Build closes soon, but there’s still time to join us next week! Fundraise or donate a minimum of $200 to participate, and join us on the construction site in National City or in our ReStores. Your support and fundraising will ensure that more local veterans have a safe, decent place to call home.
