Nick, Dale, and Dave are dedicated and passionate volunteers for Rebuilding Together South Sound. Rachel Lehr, the AmeriCorps year round coordinator for Rebuilding Together South Sound, described them as their “go to guys for projects.”
These retired electricians have been volunteering their time and skills for 18 months. And in that year and a half, they’ve completed 15 projects. In fact, Rachel finds it hard to keep up with their demand of work. Nick, Dale, and Dave would love it if they could complete a project every week.
“We completely trust them,” said Rachel. “If we need to widen doorways or fix steps, they can totally do it. They know homes and understand their structure.”
The math of their impact doesn’t lie. This trio has donated nearly $9,000 of market value between their time and skills through the projects they’ve completed themselves. That dollar amount rises to $54,000 if you count the projects they helped out with.
“It’s not something they have to do - they want to,” Rachel explained. “They think it’s important to help people. They like Rebuilding Together because they get to meet the people they’re helping.”
