Wells Fargo National Rebuilding Day

Wells Fargo LogoThe first Saturday in May is our Annual Wells Fargo National Rebuilding Day.

Rebuilding Together, a team of Wells Fargo volunteers and volunteers from other organizations will participate in the seventh-annual Wells Fargo National Rebuilding Day. The volunteers will complete critical home repairs to help more than 30 low-income families throughout Greater Des Moines.

We utilize over 700 volunteers for this project and repair over 30 homes in one day. Mark your calendar for May 2018 as we join together to revitalize our city and help low-income homeowners stay safe, healthy and dry.

Examples of home repairs that may be provided: repairing or replacing flooring, windows, steps, wheelchair ramps, stabilizing a shower, kitchen cabinet installs, removal and install of back steps, landscaping, and repainting of exterior and many more. These improvements will enable the homeowners and their families to live in a safe and healthy home.
