Rebuilding Day A Succuss!

Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities would like to greatly thank the over 100 volunteers, trades people, and the support of our local businesses for making a successful Rebuilding Day! For 2024 we were able to help keep four homeowners stay safe, warm, and dry in their homes. Our community showed their generosity once again donating their time on April 27th. House #1 in Cedarpines Park was sponsored by the Ted Roy Foundation and Mountain Storage. The House Captain was Wayne Palmer with Volunteer Coordinator Lorna Polley. They with their volunteers replaced fascia boards, repaired front stairs, and cleaned up two dumpsters of yard waste with rain gutters to be installed. House 2, in Running Springs was sponsored by the Lake Arrowhead Rotary and Joan Leopold. The House Captain was Scott Markovich with Volunteer Coordinator Allison Banner. Firewood was split and stacked, fences, gates, and other items were repaired, the fence and house paint was touched-up, and two dumpsters of yard waste was cleaned-up. House 3 in Crestline was sponsored by Mountain Sunrise Rotary with workers from Mountain Sunrise Rotary and the Skyforest Elks. The House Captain was Willie Kanayan with Volunteer Coordinators Rudy & Karyn Westervelt. Their were extensive deck and stair repairs, new fascia boards installed, a window repaired, a new microwave installed, plumbing and electrical repairs, with two dumpsters and three trailer-fulls of yard clean-up and debris. House 4 in Crestline was sponsored by Running Springs Golden Oaks and Lake Arrowhead Community Presbyterian Church with workers from Lake Arrowhead Community Presbyterian Church, Church of the Woods, and Lake Gregory Community Church. The House Captain was Wayne Palmer with Volunteer Coordinators John Moore and Sue Parks. A large amount of firewood was split and stacked, a new storage shed was built, there was some exterior house painting, a bathroom was remodeled with new vanity and cabinet, electrical and plumbing repairs, house items moved for new flooring installed due to water damage, and two dumpster were filled with yard clean-up and debris. Thanks again to our community and see you all next year!


To paraphrase an old proverb,” A society grows when old men plant trees knowing they will never sit in their shade”. Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities has spent the last 30 years helping the mountain communities’ most vulnerable neighbors stay” warm safe and dry” in their own homes, by doing the home repairs that are beyond their financial reach. This type of organization wouldn’t be possible without a dedicated community, mountain contractors, and a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors.

If you are new to our community or are unaware of what we do, here are the particulars in a nutshell. Our signature once a year program Rebuilding Day accepts applications each year from homeowners. Those homes that are selected, get specific repairs done by community volunteers, supervised by licensed contractors and skilled labor who also give their time and effort at no charge. Materials are donated or are paid for by Rebuilding Together.

Please consider joining us for a day of fun and generosity April 27th at 7 a.m. at the Mountain Communities Senior Center 675 Grandview Rd. Twin Peaks 92391.
