Record Observer - - News -

CH­ESTER — The Queen Anne’s County Af­fil­i­ate of the Re­build­ing To­gether ( for­merly Christ­mas in April) is busy pre­par­ing for Na­tional Re­build­ing Day, which is April 30. All the work done by Re­build­ing To­gether is done with the help of lo­cal volun- teers, both skilled and less skilled ( reg­u­lar peo­ple). Money is needed to pay for sup­plies to com­plete the projects.

On Fri­day, April 8, Sweet Frog yogurt shop in Ch­ester will do­nate a por­tion of their pro­ceeds to help Re­build­ing To­gether.

Re­build­ing To­gether board mem­bers will be avail­able at Sweet Frog from 5 to 8 p. m. on April 8 with in­for­ma­tion about Re­build­ing To­gether and to re­spond to any ques­tions peo­ple may have about the or­ga­ni­za­tion. Do­na­tions can be made at Sweet Frog on April 8 or mailed di­rectly to Re­build­ing To­gether, P. O. Box 73, Cen­tre­ville, MD 21617. All con­tri­bu­tions go di­rectly into the fund for pur­chas­ing build­ing ma­te­ri­als.

All work done by the lo­cal Re­build­ing To­gether is done in Queen Anne’s County, on homes that are owned by the res­i­dents. To qual­ify for help, home­own­ers must pro­vide proof of own­er­ship, res­i­dence and be cur­rent with their taxes. There are in­come guide­lines, with can­di­dates need­ing to be liv­ing near, at or be­low the poverty level.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion also tries to help el­derly, dis­abled res­i­dents so they can live more com­fort­ably in their homes.

On Satur­day, April 30, Queen Anne’s Re­build­ing To­gether will work with com­mu­nity vol­un­teers on six homes in the county.
