Our Fix It Up Raffle winner is Christy Wrightington of Pearl River, New York. Christy receives a $500 Lowe's gift card and the skilled service of a carpenter, electrician, and landscaper for her home. Congratulations, Christy. We thank you and everyone who entered our second annual Fix It Up Raffle to support safe and healthy housing.
On April 30, we made homes safer and healthier for six Bergen County families and for the young residents of two group homes for foster children. Here's what homeowners and volunteers had to say at one home.
You can support our work with a tax-deductible donation:
Or mail a check payable to Rebuilding Together Bergen County, to PO Box 1389, Ridgewood NJ 07451-1389.
Don't forget to take the Safe and Healthy Homes pledge. Visit togetherwetransform.org/pledge.
Home fires can spread rapidly, leaving occupants as little as two minutes to escape once an alarm sounds. Homeowners: If you are 60 or older, own your home, and meet low-income levels*, we can install smoke- and carbon monoxide alarms at no cost! Call 201-447-8886 or complete our Fire Safety Application. (*less than $47,000/yr for one-person household, $53,700 for two-person.)
Homeowners or renters who do not meet the above guidelines may still qualify to have 10-year lithium-battery smoke alarms installed in their home or apartment. Call 201-447-8886.
Smoke-alarm and CO-detector installations will resume in later this month spring and in the summer.
