With support from our National Office, RTMC was able to receive funding from USAA to work on the home of a low-income veteran homeowner in Montgomery County. Through this funding opportunity, our volunteer handymen were able to come together and work on a veteran’s home in Silver Spring, MD. With repairs nearly complete, our client will be able to enjoy the holidays in a safer and healthier home.

Wells Fargo (12/14/17)
Last Thursday, December 14th, a group of volunteers from Wells Fargo came together to work on the Rebuilding Together Montgomery County warehouse in Rockville, MD. Despite the freezing temperatures and recent snowfall, volunteers worked throughout the day organizing materials and cleaning up the warehouse. We are thankful to have had such an eager, and fun, group that helped us prepare for our two major events in March and April.
The Donaldson Group (11/15/17)
Last Wednesday, a brave group from The Donaldson Group made their way to Takoma Park to work on the home of Ms. Mills, despite the cold weather. The volunteers quickly got to work inside and out, by clearing debris, painting, and renovating a bathroom. Ms. Mills worked alongside the group of volunteers and was astonished by work that was completed by the end of the day.
Thanks to The Donaldson Group, Ms. Mills is now able to reside in a safer, healthier, and happier home for years to come. For more photos from the project day, please check out our Facebook page.

HSBC and Residential One (10/11/17)
Just a few weeks ago, HSBC employees enlisted the support of Residential One employees to come together and work on Mrs. Cohan’s home in Wheaton. Mrs. Cohan has been a long time resident of the area, and is very active in her neighborhood. Unfortuantly, with no family in the immediate area and limited resources available, Mrs. Cohan was in need of a handful of repairs in her home.
The team of HSBC and Residential One volunteers got straight to work on Wednesday, October 11th, and began painting the interior of her home, landscaping the exterior, repairing concrete walkways and patios, replacing window blinds, and making repairs in the bathroom. The team was so eager that they were even able to replace a storm door in the rear of the home, and install a new front door for Mrs. Cohan.
Thanks to HSBC and Residential One volunteers, we were able to provide Mrs. Cohan with a safer and healthier home to live in, giving comfort to the rest of her family that is many miles away. For more photos from the project, please visit our Facebook page.
Lerch Early Brewer (9/23/17)
On Saturday, September 23rd, over 20 volunteers from Lerch Early Brewer descended upon Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s home in Rockville to collectively make improvements to their home and ensure they have a safe and healthy home. Volunteers began the morning by dividing into groups and taking on tasks such has painting the living and dining room, stripping and re-painting their front porch and rails, refinishing their back deck, and landscaping their front yard. The group moved quickly and was able to complete their assigned tasks before the day was complete. Lerch Early Brewer’s commitment to the community allowed RTMC to make additional repairs such as installing a new kitchen faucet and supply lines, troubleshooting the rafter framing, and installing adequate fire prevention equipment.
Thanks to the Lerch Early Brewer team, and the hard working volunteers, the Carters and their grandchildren now will be able to reside in a safer, healthier, and happier home for years to come. For more photos from the project day, please check out our Facebook page.
JBG Smith Cares – A Hero’s at Home Project (9/7/2017)
Earlier this month, RTMC partnered with JBG Smith and Sears to work on our annual Hero’s at Home Project. JBG Smith employee’s came out on a beautiful September morning to work on the home of Mr. and Mrs. Cox.
Mr. Cox, is an army veteran, having served during World War II. He and his wife are now elderly and are both in declining health. Because of this, they were not able to complete critical repairs in their home. With their children’s help, they reached out to RTMC to ask for help in making repairs so they could continue to live in their home and age in place. The support provided from JBG Smith and Sears allowed for the home to be transformed by resolving the Cox’s plumbing issues, fixing their roof, providing repairs to the interior walls of the home, fixing door frames and steps, and cleaning up the exterior of their home. The Cox’s children joined the JBG Smith volunteers on the day of service to assist in making these repairs.
