Waupauca, WI – Rebuilding Together Fox Valley, a nonprofit with a vision of safe homes and communities for everyone, is partnering with Faulks Brothers Construction and Legacy Seeds to provide critical home repairs to a neighbor in need.

The agency serves homeowners in Waupaca, Winnebago, Calumet and Outagamie Counties that have a household income of 80% of less of the County median income level, prioritizing applicants that are senior citizens, people with disabilities and veterans. Homeowners must own and live in the home, be current with property taxes and have homeowner’s insurance. Corporations and individuals throughout our community sponsor homes and organize teams of unskilled and skilled tradespeople to work together on these homes and community projects.

Rebuilding Together Fox Valley provides repairs that are critical to the health and safety of the home and its residents, such as installing grab bars, replacing flooring that is a tripping hazard, installing exhaust fans, and modifying bathrooms. The agency is funded by corporate sponsors, foundations, grants, and fundraising events. Volunteers are the life blood of the agency, providing the labor for all projects.

“When we needed partners to sponsor and provide volunteers for the project in Waupaca, one of our Board members reached out to Bruce Ceranske from Legacy Seeds and Wendy McIntee from Faulks Brothers Construction,” said Chip Wood, executive director of Rebuilding Together Fox Valley. “Bruce and Wendy were happy to offer their assistance, showing their true commitment to the community. This project could not be successful without them.”

The project is scheduled for Friday, September 13th and will involve repainting the exterior of the home and replacing flooring inside the home. A complete bathroom remodel is also being scheduled with a licensed contractor.
