Tree Trimming/Thinning Project in West Coconut Grove
To kick off the year, we launched a pilot program in Village West Coconut Grove that allows homeowners to receive necessary tree trimming for a very low cost. We selected 25 properties, where a maximum of 3 trees were trimmed/thinned to remove low hanging branches that were threats to the home and powerlines. By partnering with a local arborist, this program was a huge success in preparing homes for hurricane season, and even allowing some homeowners to be re-instated for their homeowner's insurance policies!
Spring 2023 Team Depot Veterans Projects
During the Spring of 2023, we partnered with the Home Depot Foundation to provide exterior repairs to 9 Veterans living in Miami-Dade County. Important critical repairs include exterior painting, landscaping, installation of ramps and gutters, new appliances, new patio sets, new porch screens, and tree trimming.
National Rebuilding Day 2023
April 29th, 2023 was National Rebuilding Day. On this day, Rebuilding Together affiliates across the nation provided repairs to homes in need with volunteers. Our organization helped repair 6 homes and 1 community space with over 150 volunteers in West Coconut Grove all on the same day!
Floor and Decor Volunteer Day
During March of 2023, Floor and Decor employees volunteered to revitalize a Veterans home and care facility in Allapattah. At this event landscaping was done to beautify the courtyard that all the residents can use. Thanks to the grant, other repairs were completed by contractors, including ADA bathroom conversions and new locking mechanisms on all of the units.
Miami Open Volunteer Day
In March 2023, during the Miami Open Tournament, 4 professional international tennis players volunteered to paint a home in Miami Gardens, along with the Women's Tennis Association. A Veteran and his family live in the home, and they are so happy with how the painting came out.
Plymouth Congregational Volunteer Day
In February of 2023 we hosted a volunteer day with Plymouth Congregational Church to provide exterior paint to a home in their local neighborhood. This West Coconut Grove home was beautified by the members and the homeowner is thrilled!
