“We get a lot of questions from companies and community members when it comes to how they can help get involved and make a positive impact on affordable housing in the Upstate,” said Chris Manley, President/CEO of Rebuild Upstate. “Wake Up is going to have those answers.”
Rebuild Upstate helps low-income homeowners with home repairs and accessibility improvements to create safe, livable housing in existing homes and neighborhoods. Home repairs can range from small plumbing fixes to roof and floor replacements. Accessibility improvements range from installing grab bars and railings for vulnerable populations to building wheelchair ramps for those with disabilities.
“Rebuild Upstate will be using this event to kick-off our celebration of 15 years repairing homes of low-income families in our community,” Manley said. “Since Rebuild Upstate’s start in 2006, the organization’s staff and volunteers have repaired over 1,200 homes across the Upstate.”
