Volunteers from seven local organizations gave their time on April 27 to help rehab the properties on eight different Evanston sites as part of National Rebuilding Together Day.

Sojourner Covenant Church, First Presbyterian Church of Evanston, Evanston Lighthouse Rotary, Evanston American Legion Post 42, Evanston Scout Troop 3, NorthShore University Health Systems and Morgante-Wilson Architects all helped to provide free home repairs and modifications for low-income Americans – with a focus on the elderly, the disabled, military veterans and families in need.

The Scouts in Troop 3 worked together with members of American Legion Post 42 in the yard of a west side house, resetting sidewalk bricks and planting a rock-encircled garden. A new roof by a local contractor was slated for the front porch, said Greg Lisinski of American Legion Post 42. All the work was scheduled to be completed by 5 p.m. that day, the niece of the homeowner told the RoundTable.
