Elderly North Burien Couple Get Free Home Makeover


Print This Post  Email This Post

On Saturday (Nov. 6th), we received an email from Margie Thirlby, Director of Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS), a non-profit organization that “provides donated repair services to low-income homeowners, including the elderly, disabled, families with children, and veterans in need” in the area.

On Saturday, Margie tells us that several volunteers helped John and Verna, an elderly veteran couple who live in North Burien, and who applied to their free home repair program that is made possible by Lowes, the Project Sponsor.

By Monday (Nov. 8th), the RTS team will provide them with new flooring, new insulation, a new back door, and window improvements.

If you’re interested in applying for one of these grants, please contact the RTS office at 206.682.1231 to request an application. RTS also serves non-profit facilities.
