Making a Difference in Haddington!
On Saturday, July 18th, RTP staff and ten[Re]Builders gathered together (safely, of course!) to provide external repairs and modifications to nine Haddington, West Philadelphia homes. [Re]Builders assembled address plaques, installed exterior steps and handrails, and removed debris and foliage from backyards. You can hear and see two of the homeowners’ in the video, TV, and radio clips throughout this newsletter.
Some highlights from the Build:
Raheem David was interviewed by KYW Newsradio, where he expressed how happy he was to give back to the neighborhood where he grew up.
Homeowners Linda Smith and Laura Francis were interviewed.
Congressman Dwight Evans and Councilman Curtis Jones shared their appreciation for our [Re]Builders’ dedication. They also had a chance to meet homeowners and tour the houses we were working in.
