Published: May 5, 2014

Local 36 members in St. Louis joined an army of more than 1500 volunteers as part of the Rebuilding Together St. Louis organization’s massive home rehab blitz Saturday.   This was part of an effort to provide free home repair for low-income and elderly homeowners.

Joining Local 36 were Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562, Glaziers Local 513 and IBEW Local 1.

They handled projects from fixing leaky faucets and replacing faulty electrical wiring and service panels to rebuilding outdoor decks and replacing doors, windows, and kitchen & bathroom fixtures and appliances.   At the end of the day, Rebuilding Together St. Louis provided more than $677,000 worth of materials and labor at the 55 homes thanks to the army of volunteers.
