Though skies were rainy on April 28th, Rebuilding Together brought sunshine to nine homes in Hobart and Lake Station selected to receive some extra care and attention. Several team members from REGIONAL federal credit union volunteered their time to help install energy efficient windows, doors and siding, remove trash and repair the front porch at the home sponsored by the Hobart Chamber of Commerce.
REGIONAL Director of Business Development and Hobart Chamber president Kevin Kosek says it’s just one of those things credit unions do; “Credit unions give back to the communities they serve. By working with Rebuilding Together, we’re continuing a tradition that goes back over a hundred years.” Kosek served as house captain for the property in Hobart, alongside Randy Ralls, co-owner of Service Doctor in Merrillville.
Rebuilding Together has been rebuilding homes for Hobart and Lake Station’s elderly, disabled and low-income families for over 30 years, with help from community churches, non-profit groups, the City of Hobart and Lake Station and countless volunteers from businesses across Northwest Indiana.
Anyone who wished to donate their time, talent or treasure for next year’s efforts may contact Col. Mike Adams at the Hobart Chamber of Commerce, 219-942-5774 or 1001 Lillian Street, Hobart, Indiana 46342.
