Opportunity to enhance homes for those in need
Residents in need of outside home maintenance can now apply for help from a team of volunteers who will help tackle yard clean-ups or single-story exterior painting. The "Day of Sharing and Caring" is a partnership between the City of Bellevue and Jubilee REACH, a Bellevue-based nonprofit. The program, now in its 10th year, will help approximately 20 local homeowners.
Residents can request a home improvement application by contacting Jubilee REACH's Ken Carpenter, at 425-818-4106 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submitting requests is May 31. A committee representing Jubilee REACH will review applications and select projects. Home selection is need-based; residents facing economic or other life challenges. Residents whose projects are selected will be notified by July 18.
"Day of Sharing and Caring" improvements will take place beginning late July through the month of August. To be considered, you must own and occupy your home in Bellevue.
Individuals, businesses or nonprofit groups interested in volunteering are also encouraged to call Carpenter at Jubilee REACH. For more information on the "Day of Sharing and Caring" program, please contact Carol Ross at email@example.com or 425-452-7917.
