Rebuilding Together Alexandria - Dedicate to Insulate

Help insulate a low-income family’s home and save them up to 30% off their next utility bill.
By Jane Hess Collins

AmeriCorps members Dorothy Shepard and Ryan Baesten, assigned to Rebuilding Together Alexandria, stayed warm by hauling these heavy bags to dozens of apartments.


Baby, it’s cold outside! The morning that Rebuilding Together Alexandria (RTA) asked volunteers to help winterize low-income homes for Energize Alexandria, it was 39 degrees outside-and felt like 19 degrees.

Participated in this program as a volunteer in the past and it was awful.  The staff are clueless and rude.

That is great they are recruiting volunteers! Please keep us updated on the status! I would love to hear that low-income families are able to stay warmer this Winter.
