CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE (Nov. 24, 2019) -- Rebuilding Together Chattanooga funded its second neighbors-helping-neighbors project in the St. Elmo neighborhood on Nov. 24, 2019.
As many within the community came together to raise money for needed repairs to the Lombardo home after a storm caused damage in July 2019, Rebuilding Together Chattanooga donated $2,000 in materials from its Revitalizer level partner, Lowe’s Home Improvement, in order to cap off the needed project amount.
"Thanks to recent generous donations by area churches, we got really near the goal," said Alison Van Winkle, the project's fundraising organizer. "Then, the family received a Lowe's grant for building materials thru Rebuilding Together of Chattanooga, founded in St Elmo. This took care of the remaining balance. Thank you to all who prayed, donated time and gave financial support."
