On Saturday, May 2nd, a team of 18 from Centric Columbus participated in Rebuilding Together Central Ohio’s (RTCO) annual Rebuilding a Healthy Neighborhood event. The Centric team spent the better part of their Saturday at a home in Whitehall. They performed various renovation projects for an elderly couple that has lived in the neighborhood for decades.

Centric Columbus also provided a $5,000 donation to RTCO to help them continue their efforts to preserve home ownership. This is the longest running community service event for Centric Columbus. It is a big part of how Centric gives back to Central Ohio.

About Rebuilding Together Central Ohio

Rebuilding Together Central Ohio believes that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home. Their focus is to provide critical repairs, accessibility modifications, and energy efficient upgrades to low-income homes and community centers at no cost to service recipients.

Rebuilding a Healthy Neighborhood is the signature annual event for RTCO. It brings national attention to the housing needs that exist in countless communities across America and serves as a cornerstone for RTCO’s mission. On this one day in May, volunteers, corporate sponsors, and community organizations join together to make holistic repairs to homes and to revitalize entire communities. This event is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of community volunteers as part of a nationwide effort to preserve home ownership.
