Give Back to the East Bay Community

AIA East Bay is pleased to participate in this year’s Block Building program, organized by Rebuilding Together, Oakland. Through this worthy program, a team of 25-40 volunteers will come together for two weekends to make much-needed renovations to one of 12 low- income homes in Sobrante Park. This area of East Oakland is on the San Leandro border, and desperately needs our members’ help and expertise.

The working days will be October 7 and 14th. While you need not be available for both days, it is always appreciated. We will be convening volunteers a few times in advance to determine roles, skills, etc.
Rebuilding Together Oakland will provide all needed materials, t-shirts, and meals. There is absolutely no financial requirement to participate. Please encourage co-workers, friends, and neighbors to participate. The more able bodies we have, the more improvements completed.

Please come to a planning session this Wednesday, August 23 at 12:00 noon at AIA East Bay. During this session the skill levels of the volunteers and the roles each of us will play will be determined.
This is a brown bag lunch, drinks will be provided. If for some reason you cannot attend, but would like to volunteer, call
Kellie Hewlett, Program Coordinator, at 510/464-3600.

For more information: To RSVP for the information session, email Kellie Hewlett at kellie@aiaeb.org or call 510/464-3600.
