Rebuilding Together Featured in Latest Issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine!
Check out Rebuilding Together in the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine! Rebuilding Together National Office Board Member, Mell Meredith-Fraizer, Vice Chairman of Meredith Corporation, brought this opportunity to us a few months ago and Rebuilding Together Long Island worked diligently to bring everything to fruition
The article titled “Home, Sweet Home” on pages 70-74 describes the story of a grandmother, Karen, unexpectedly jumping back into parenting and the housing difficulties she faced in making her home conducive to a growing four-year-old. She needed a reliable, safe deck and an updated water filtration system. Rebuilding Together Long Island also provided the home with paneling, hardware, lighting fixtures and additional storage to deter clutter.
Local designer Jen O’Brien took the lead on redesigning the home for Karen and her grandson, Liam. Through Jen’s room concept and Rebuilding Together Long Island’s repairs, the home has reduced fall risks and ensures a safe and healthy environment for Liam to play, learn and grow. The materials for this project were provided by donors including national sponsors Lowe’s and Sherwin Williams.
Meredith Corporation, parent company of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, has partnered with Rebuilding Together for over 15 years to help us make homes safer and healthier for people in need. Take a look at the story reflecting this long-standing partnership in the October issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine on newsstands now.
