TEAM FOR TOMORROW: NATIONAL REBUILDING TOGETHER DAY

On Saturday, April 28th Truebeck volunteers gave back to the community through a national teambuilding event: Rebuilding Together.

We remodeled a facility in East Palo Alto called Free At Last (http://freeatlast.org/), which assists recovering addicts and gives them a second chance to succeed in life. We replaced flooring in the common area of the facility, painted the exterior walls of their residential buildings and minor safety-related repairs (ie installing grab bars, exhaust fans, etc). We ended a day’s hard work with an onsite BBQ to celebrate. It was a great opportunity to work with the individuals living at the center to teach them trade skills and demonstrate the power of teamwork. Remember, we win as a team and high five a lot!
