Rebuilding Macon, Inc. is devoted to Macon Rebuilding Day - our annual one-day blitz where volunteers make home repairs to the homes of low-income elderly and disabled homeowners in Macon and Bibb County.
Months of planning and preparation culminate in Macon Rebuilding Day–often the last Saturday in April–when volunteers, both skilled and unskilled, come together to transform neighborhoods by repairing and rehabilitating the houses of needy or disabled resident’s one house at a time.
Rebuilding Macon volunteers perform most types of work on the homes of our beneficiaries, including carpentry, painting, and plumbing, electrical, roofing, weather-stripping, trash removal and cleaning. Our goal is to leave each home safe, warm, and dry. We hope to add a bit of joy and dignity into the lives of homeowners.
Rebuilding Macon volunteers come from businesses, church groups, schools, community service and religious organizations, corporations and associations. All walks of life are represented, and anyone age 14 or older who’s willing to lend a hand can help. Whether you are a novice or a pro, we can use your help!
Skilled and experienced volunteers should consider maximizing the use of their skills by becoming a House Captain. There are also opportunities for Volunteer Coordinators and people to help with logistics.
All repairs are paid for by Rebuilding Macon. Homeowners are not expected to pay for services provided. They are asked, if able, to work with us on Rebuilding Macon Day.
Rebuilding Macon receives money from churches, businesses, corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. All donations are tax deductible.
Sponsorship opportunites are available for Macon Rebuilding Day.
