LAS VEGAS, Feb. 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Rebuilding Together, a leading national nonprofit rebuilding communities in need, partnered with Lowe’s, the Official Home Improvement Sponsor of the NFL, to provide essential home repairs for six families and community improvements in a Las Vegas-area neighborhood. On Friday, Feb. 9, running back Chase Brown joined nearly 200 volunteers to help revitalize the community as part of Kickoff to Rebuild, an annual Super Bowl-sanctioned event.

“At Rebuilding Together, we work not only to repair homes, but revitalize communities and rebuild lives,” said Caroline Blakely, president and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “Through Kickoff to Rebuild, we’ve repaired more than 176 homes, engaged more than 5,200 volunteers, and invested $6 million in communities in need.” 

“The repairs we completed today addressed urgent needs for lifelong residents and helped to strengthen the entire neighborhood,” said John Brooks, Lowe’s regional vice president. “As a part of Lowe’s longtime partnership with Rebuilding Together, we are proud to have had more than 140 red vest associates onsite to volunteer and share their DIY expertise to help families remain in their homes for years to come.”

The Valley View neighborhood, located southeast of Las Vegas in Henderson, is a 578-acre residential community primarily consisting of single-family homes, many of which are showing signs of deterioration. As affordable housing in the area declines, several homeowners want to remain in place and pass their homes to the next generation but are unable to make essential repairs. These homes are where long-term residents of the community have grown up, raised their families, and created irreplaceable memories.

This year’s event, led by the nonprofit’s local affiliate, Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, helped six families to remain safely in their homes and enjoy their community center for years to come. Since 1994, Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada has helped provide more than 7,800 Las Vegas families with safer community spaces and healthier homes.

Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, Lowe’s red vest associates, community volunteers, and local contractors came together to provide total roof and door replacements, new windows, extensive bathroom upgrades, new water heaters, and more. Additionally, volunteers added a fresh coat of paint to the gymnasium at the local branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada and cleaned up tree trimmings throughout the neighborhood to create safer streets.

“Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada has provided 30 years of work in the Southern Nevada region, and we are proud to help these homeowners protect their most valuable asset and help to pass a safe home down to the next generation,” said Bob Cleveland, executive director of Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada. “We are so grateful to all our partners, volunteers, and contractors who are helping to rebuild and revitalize communities at no cost to neighbors in need.”

Additional sponsors and partners who made Kickoff to Rebuild in Las Vegas possible include CreditOne Bank, ADT, Affordable Tree Service, Republic Services, City of Henderson, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada’s John C. Kish Club.
