As Part of the 29th Annual Kickoff to Rebuild Event, Kirk Morrison Teamed Up with Rebuilding Together and Lowes Home Improvement to Help Revitalize a Local Las Vegas Neighborhood
In neighborhoods nationwide, more than 2.6 million homeowners live in deteriorating, physically inadequate homes that threaten their health and safety, including those near Allegiant Stadium, the site of Super Bowl LVIII. Having a safe and healthy home is foundational to so many aspects of our lives, from a sense of community and safety to physical and mental well-being, to economic security and independence.
Through its national network of affiliates, Rebuilding Together works proactively and collaboratively with community leaders, long-term residents, funders, and volunteers to foster dialogue and create safe, healthy communities across the country. Kickoff to Rebuild represents Rebuilding Togethers belief that every neighbor should have the opportunity to live in a safe and healthy home and community, and to remain in the places they call home.
To date, through Kickoff to Rebuild, Rebuilding Together has made improvements to more than 176 homes, engaged 5,200 volunteers, and invested $6 million to communities in need.
Lowes has partnered with Rebuilding Together since 2007, and has worked together to revitalize communities and improve the lives of thousands of our neighbors over the years. In 2023, Lowes announced a two-year, $6 million donation to Rebuilding Together to address urgent housing challenges by providing safe homes for veterans, seniors, people with disabilities, families with children, and neighbors impacted by disaster.
This years event was led by the nonprofits local affiliate, Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, which has helped provide more than 7,800 Las Vegas families with safer community spaces and healthier homes over the past 30 years. As part of this project, volunteers, local contractors and members of the community came together to provide essential repairs including roof and door replacements, extensive bathroom upgrades, exterior painting, landscaping improvements, and new water heaters all at no cost to the homeowners. Additionally, the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevadas John C. Kish Club received a fresh coat of paint to its large gymnasium to provide a safe and enjoyable place for youth to play, learn, build relationships and grow.
