West Seattle home gets TLC from Rebuilding Together, Safeway volunteers

This month, Rebuilding Together Seattle volunteers are doing work inside and out at a home in the Charlestown/Genesee area, and today about 50 Safeway workers joined the project, as part of their company’s monthlong campaign focusing on disability awareness. They spent the day providing free labor at the home that belongs to Shawn, who is living with multiple sclerosis, and Katy, who works with special-needs students at a Seattle elementary school in addition to being caregiver for Shawn.

RTS describes the work at Shawn and Katy’s home as including “a new stove and range hood, updating the bathtub to a shower, installing grab bars and hand rails, replacing kitchen flooring, repairing and staining the back deck, repairing the fence, painting several rooms, organizing and removing clutter, and completing yard work.” The Seattle affiliate of Rebuilding Together is one of 200 coast-to-coast; its website includes info on how to seek help from, or offer help to, the nonprofit.
