Union workers, volunteers rehab 55 homes in one day

ST. LOUIS (KPLR) –St. Louis area union members joined an army of more than 1500 volunteers as part of the Rebuilding Together St. Louis organization’s massive home rehab blitz Saturday. They tackled 55 St. Louis area homes all in one day.

Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562 and the IBEW Local 1 held kick-off events at their union halls and then went to work.  Both unions, along with the Glaziers Local 513 and Sheet Metal Local 36, were part of the effort to provide free home repair for low-income and elderly homeowners.

They handled projects from fixing leaky faucets and replacing faulty electrical wiring and service panels to rebuilding outdoor decks and replacing doors, windows, and kitchen & bathroom fixtures and appliances.

Home owner, Mary Parker, of Jennings, said she felt like Cinderella.  She “adopted” the 40 or so volunteers who restored her home.

In all, Rebuilding Together St. Louis provided more than $677,000 worth of materials and labor at the 55 homes thanks to the organization’s sponsors. For a full list of sponsors, click here.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how yoou
    center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had
    difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure
    out how tto begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    A low-riding marble-topped table with leather seating tucked beneath can cover a great
    spot within the corner for going for a cup of tea or giving the youngsters their particular special place.
    They are best for contemporary homes, rooms, and offices that value modern,
    international style and supple, full-grain leather. You can take a look at Tree –

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to myy 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermkit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
